School visits

We welcome school visits to our Synagogue.

A visit to Radlett Reform is a great way for your students to learn about Judaism.  Our friendly hosts will provide an open space for them to learn about the Jewish religion along with our programme also supporting the requirements of the National Curriculum, providing a useful educational resource.

We frequently host visits of primary and secondary school pupils and their teachers from Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and north London, offering them an understanding of Jewish belief and practice.  

Students will get to explore our sanctuary learning to identify its different components.  They will get up close to a Sefer Torah - a scroll containing hand-written Hebrew of the first five books of the Jewish Bible. As standard we also provide an introduction to Shabbat - an important weekly event in the Jewish calendar.

Of course we encourage, and leave plenty of time for, guests to ask questions.

Each visit lasts about two hours. A typical visit includes a general introduction to our Synagogue and an exploration of some of the Jewish customs and ritual items found here.

Our programme can be booked on a Monday - Thursday  from 10.00-12.00, allowing schools time for the journey outside rush hour.

You can see from the letters (click here) we receive that the pupils find this visit a unique learning experience

We ask schools to contribute a minimum donation of £1.00 per child.
This goes towards covering the cost of visits and ensures we can continue to offer this service to more groups in the future.

We look forward to your visit.
