Hertsmere Jewish school plan

A meeting has been arranged this month to gauge interest in a new Jewish voluntary aided primary school in Hertsmere.

It will be hosted by Jewish Primary Education in South Hertfordshire, a working group of the Hertfordshire Education Forum, and held at Yavneh College on July 12.

With the oversubscription of Hertsmere Jewish Primary, many parents are struggling to find Jewish school places for their children in the locality.

J-PESH chairman Alan Hirschowitz said the aim was to enable children to reach secondary school "equipped with strong Jewish values, excellent knowledge, a love of being Jewish and pride in Israel".
