As a service to the schools we visit, we offer a number of items that we can post to you in advance. (These items are also available for visits in person, but aside from Passover items, they are not usually needed. For visits in person, we offer different items, such as challah bread and grape juice.)
These extras serve two purposes:
On this page, you will find the current costs of the extras we offer for virtual workshops. There will also be a charge for postage and packing.
Please note that these items are available only if you book a visit and this is not a retail shop. We offer extras as a service to schools who book a visit, and seek to keep the costs as low as possible, with minimal mark-up to cover our overheads. We have worked hard to find items that are affordable for you, or to make them in-house if necessary.
The prices below are subject to change, depending on our own costs of sourcing items. Please also understand although we have done our best to depict items accurately, some objects may vary in appearance, and for items that are produced in-house (such as challah covers), no two items will be exactly alike.
Because we are keeping the costs low for schools, we cannot afford to accept returns or offer refunds if you change your mind after your items have been posted.
We will advise you on which items will be most helpful for you.
