Re-established cheder holds first prize-giving in 15 years

Following the first year of Welwyn Garden City Synagogue's re-established cheder, the community held a prize-giving - the first at the United Synagogue-affiliated shul for almost 15 years. In front of parents and community members, the cheder's seven pupils each received a prize and a certificate. The cheder was re-launched under the aegis of Risa Gruber, a former teacher and the wife of the shul's new minister, Rabbi Hillel Gruber.
