Youth at Chabad Ilford

Jewish tradition has always promoted a loving approach from one individual to another. We are dedicated to making the richness of our Jewish heritage accessible to the contemporary Jew, every Jew, no matter what their affiliation or level of religious observance.

Aleph Champ

Our Hebrew reading curriculum is the latest educational breakthrough around. Based on the martial arts motivational philosophy of colour coded levels and testing, it provides excitement and inspiration, leading the students into a winning cycle of learning.

The Hebrew alphabet as well as the vowels and word formation are divided into 10 coloured levels. The students start out as “White Aleph Champs”, working their way up the colours of the rainbow to be a “black Aleph Champ” like their teachers. Games, flashcards, workbooks and rewards make every step along this remarkable journey a fun and educational success.

Judaism Comes Alive!

We create an environment that brings Judaism to life, fosters creativity and supports your child’s personal style of learning. Our innovative methods make learning fun and memorable.

We use a unique approach which is hands-on and stimulates your child’s intellect. Our curriculum has been designed to make a lasting, positive impact on the life of your child, through drama, song, art and stories.

Through our mitzvah curriculum we emphasize each mitzvah’s meaning for everyday life, in addition to the how-to of ritual observance. No matter what synagogue your child attends, he or she will share the language of prayer with Jews around the world.

Bar & Bat Mitzvah

Our emphasis is to foster an awareness that this milestone is only the beginning of Jewish life and help attain a greater appreciation of a Jewish life and help attain a greater appreciation of a Jewish adults responsibilities. Regardless of where the celebration and service are being held, private tutoring, arranged to accommodate today’s demanding lifestyle, is available upon request to help you prepare for this special day.


Our Staff

Our Hebrew school teachers are carefully selected for their dedication to children.

Each teacher lives and breathes what he or she teaches, providing the best possible model for our students. Through their education they have learned the strategies to successfully share Judaism with children of all levels of knowledge and ability.

In short, our teachers are as enthusiastic about teaching as our students are about leaning!



All classes are held at the Chabad Lubavitch Centre, Doris Shpiro House, 397 Eastern Avenue, Gants Hill, Ilford, Essex, IG2 6LR.
