Read about our Cheder Staff

In New Mexico, our children are often the only Jewish students in their schools and neighborhoods. Our once-a-week Cheder and once-a-month Gan give our children the opportunity to be with other Jewish kids and families while they learn about their Jewish heritage through creative and joyful experiences.

  • Hebrew Language

  • Jewish History

  • The Jewish Year

  • How to be a good person

  • B’nai Mitzvah readiness

No child ever too old to begin Cheder! For children ready for B’nai Mitzvah we offer many options to fulfill this important life-cycle event, and we help every family to create a meaningful experience.

Nahalat Shalom welcomes Rabbi Chavah Carp, our new Director of Family Education. She brings a wealth of experience, expertise, and enthusiasm to our religious school and to our entire community. Read about the Cheder Staff
