Following the judgment in the Supreme Court Jewish schools have to adopt a religious practice test for admissions.
Some schools will be asking you to complete a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP), which includes verification of synagogue attendance.
You should check the websites of the schools in which you are interested to see their specific requirements, but many are looking for attendance at synagogue.
Entry to Jewish Schools September 2019
Once again we have procedures in place to help those wishing to apply to attend Jewish Schools in September 2019 to obtain a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP).
This year, the date that eligibility for attendance at synagogue services commences is:
5th May 2018.
If you wish to have your child’s attendance at synagogue recorded so that we can verify attendance for the CRP, you need to apply to join the attendance register no later than Friday 27th April 2018,
by clicking on the link below.
Please note that the requirement to register applies to everyone, whether a member or not, who wishes to have their child’s attendance at Mill Hill Synagogue verified for school admissions purposes. If your child has not registered we will not be able to assist with a CRP.
Once we have closed the initial registration period, all registrants will be emailed details of our online CRP system which enables you to monitor the attendance record of your child(ren). This system will be active from the beginning of May via the link below:
If you have not received your login details, or if you have any other questions, please contact us:
or call Gerry Shaer on 0208 959 1137 extension 3
In 2017, we held two CRP introductory evenings to explain the process and to offer the community an alternative to the morning Shabbat service. These presentations can be downloaded by clicking on the links below:
