Who We Are

The Toronto Cheder was founded in 1995 by a group of dedicated parents with a vision to provide a strong קודש foundation coupled with an excellent secular education for each child. Over the past 25 years, “the Cheder,” as it is affectionately known, has established itself as a school known for its profound love of Torah learning and commitment to mentchlechkeit, in addition to setting high standards in General Studies, and has become a model for Jewish education in Toronto.  The Cheder’s enrollment has grown exponentially.  With over 360 students, the Cheder currently has parallel classes from Senior Kindergarten through Grade 8.  The Cheder is located at 3995 Bathurst Street in the Clanton Park neighborhood. 

The Cheder is grateful and proud of the highly skilled and dedicated leadership of its administration: our distinguished Menahel – Rabbi D. Engel, our capable Sgan Menahel – Rabbi D. Gopin and devoted General Studies Supervisor – Mrs. B. Ehrentreu.  The Cheder’s staff is composed of a highly skilled team of rebbeim and teachers and has an active Board of Directors.

Our entire educational staff is committed to actualizing the innate talents and potential within each child, and to developing in them a true love for Hashem and His Torah.

History of The Toronto Cheder

Now we are preparing to embark on the next chapter of the Cheder’s history with the purchase of the Patricia campus.  Our school plans b’ezras Hashem to move into our new home for the 2020/2021 school year.
