Sunday at Cheder - part 1

I've been looking for the opportunity to spend some time photographing kids learning about their cultural and religious heritage in a Jewish day school (cheder). In hasidic communities the schools meet five or six days a week. My own experience was two afternoons a week after regular public school which is more common in suburbia. This past Sunday, during the Hashanah Rabba celebration I previously posted, the cheder was in session and was followed by a Sukkat party for the kids to make miniature sukkas out of graham crackers and marshmallow spread. They didn't last long.





'Okay, okay, I cheated ....'
