If you are ready to book a visit, then please fill out our visit details form to let us know what sort of visit you want.
We are now performing visits in person again to schools within a 90 minute drive of Reading, but strict Covid-19 safety protocols will be required. Our virtual visits are here to stay, and are available to any school in the UK. We can discuss which option is most appropriate for you.
We can also you materials to use on site for virtual visits, such as seder plates and shabbat (LED) candlesticks, so that the workshops can still be properly hands-on even over zoom. These are also available with in person visits, but are not usually needed as Rabbi Zvi brings props with him on the day.

In Person Visit Rates
Virtual Visit Rates
*To encourage schools to utilise gaps in the diary, we discount such slots by up to £9. Please contact us for an updated list of these coordination slots.
For slightly longer visits (such as a morning visit for 3.5 hours), additional time is costed at £54/hr. Please note that visits of unusual length are not always possible.
Virtual Short Visits (assemblies and 1 hour slots)
We are happy to do short virtual visits (30 - 110 minutes) and we have organised our virtual visit rates to make these visits affordable as the virtual setup makes it much easier for us to visit multiple schools in the same day.
A single slot can be used for three classes simultaneously, whereas previously a whole morning would have been needed to work with each class individually. We can send sufficient reasonably priced props for you to have these in place in each classroom individually.
Short virtual visits will normally take place at the beginning or end of a morning or afternoon. Other times are of course possible, but the cost may then vary depending on the effect on scheduling. For example, a 50 minute visit at 11am or an assembly at 9:30am will both be costed as 1 hour visits.
Please note that, aside from visits that fill gaps in the schedule, afternoon visits must be either the full afternoon, or else 50 minutes at 1pm or 2:10pm, or occasionally an assembly at 1pm or 2:30pm.
We can discount short visits by up to £9 if you can fit your visit into a gap in the diary. So please let us know if you can be flexible about dates.
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO IN PERSON VISITS ONLY
Full Day visits:
Whole day visits allow a school to have a bit more workshop time than separate morning and afternoon visits, but for a cost that is significantly less, even without accounting for savings on travel. Particularly for schools at a distance, this is the most cost-efficient option aside from virtual visits. We offer full days at a discount because they are easier to organise than separate mornings and afternoons at different locations.
If you can fit your visit around others already scheduled nearby on a given day, then this is a coordination visit. This is the most economical way to organise a visit. Note that such slots are a matter of luck and cannot always be found.
For morning and afternoon coordination slots, the coordination discount is typically £24 plus any travel discount. Occasionally, for coordination slots that are in high demand, only travel costs will be discounted.
Standard Rates include up to 60 minutes / 40 miles round-trip travel (measured by averaging google best- and worst-case scenarios for arrival at 8:30am). For longer journeys, a travel cost will be added to the above rates, costed at £18/hr plus £.30/mile. There is no travel charge for virtual visits.
Travel costs and the coordination discount can be shared between schools if we coordinate visits, so please let us know if you are flexible about dates so that we can keep this cost as low as possible.
