Richmond Jewish Community Hub was created in 2018 as an inclusive cultural centre for the Jewish community of South West London. Based in the beautifully functional building of the Richmond Synagogue, RJCH is bringing a fresh wave of creativity and energy to the area. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of The United Synagogue Community Development Fund.
Our vision is for the RJCH to be a hub of Jewish activity at the heart of the South West London Jewish Community. We seek to build an invigorated community infused with a fresh sense of unity and connected by strong Jewish values, a love for arts and culture, a passion for education, and a strong feeling of belonging.
RJCH provides a place and programme of outstanding activities, clubs, courses and vibrant events that serve the whole Jewish community, regardless of age, denomination or level of observance.
We do this by:

Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzatto (RamChal) was an 18th century Jewish philosopher, Kabbalist and Ethicist who wrote many great works. We will be focusing on Daat Tevunot - "Knowing the Reasons" which covers topics of good & evil, reward & punishment, death, afterlife and much more.
Richmond Cheder is a warm and friendly Sunday morning Cheder that provides a fun and engaging way for our children to learn about their Judaism.
Our aim is to provide a Jewish education that will enable our children to leave Cheder with a solid grounding of Jewish practice and fluency in Hebrew reading. We hope to impart the next generation with a love of Judaism and a positive sense of Jewish identity. Our staff bring high quality, hands-on learning that caters for children of all ages.
We pride ourselves on our high staff-to-student ratio, including one-to-one Hebrew Reading teachers. We run special events around the Jewish festivals and periodic outings to bring Jewish education to life.
Most importantly, parents tell us that all the children walk out with big smiles on their faces and look forward to coming each week!
Please contact our Head Teacher to find out more information about the Cheder.
