Challenge - SMILE

Challenge Tribe's innovative Challenge programme is beyond Cheder.

Whether your child has an extensive Jewish knowledge base or is just a beginner, Challenge has been designed to cater for young people in school years 7 & 8 from all backgrounds and at all levels of Jewish knowledge and practice.

Through modern, exciting and experiential education techniques, your child will join with other young Jews in a series of interactive programmes.

The Challenge programme instils strong Jewish values, providing essential Jewish knowledge and fantastic experiences in a warm and nurturing environment, supporting your child in building a strong social group to carry them through their teen years and beyond.

The course has been created for Tribe Members who are either preparing for, or have completed their Bar or Bat Mitzvah. The course is a two year programme that ends with an accredited awards ceremony.

Participants are required to register for the full two years.

Further Interactive Learning Experience

This is a two year GCSE course in Jewish Studies (OCR Philosophy and Ethics).

The course is run for children going into school year 9 and is an opportunity for them to take the exam a school year earlier than they would normally do.

This class has been taught for over 5 years now and the results have been outstanding. The class is small and places are offered on a first come first served basis.
