Pinner Kids Jewish Fun
& Learning Programme
What is SPARK?
Spark is an innovative Jewish fun and educational programme for children in our Pinner Community and surrounding areas.
All you need is a ‘spark’. Every Jew has a spark inside of them waiting to be fanned and grown. In Yiddish this is famously called the ‘pintele yid’ (literally ‘the tiny Jew’) normally said while pointing with one’s finger towards one’s heart. No matter how distanced to Torah and Judaism we have become there is always the ‘pintele yid’, the ‘spark’ inside of us that is waiting to be ignited once the time is right. Spark is the name of our children’s programme because literally a child is a ‘pintele yid’ a ‘tiny jew’ and they are full of potential and promise just waiting to be ignited with the beauty and power of our Torah.
Aims of SPARK
- The programme’s primary aim is to enthuse children through learning about their Jewish identity and heritage.
- It is also designed to equip children with a broad range of knowledge, skills and experiences to help them to lead a fulfilling Jewish life, including Hebrew alphabet, basic Hebrew reading and knowledge of the Jewish calendar.
