Frequently asked questions

What is CRP?

The Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP) gives applicants the chance to demonstrate Jewish practice when applying to schools where a CRP forms part of the information to be supplied at the time of application. Parents and children complete this for nursery and primary applications, and the child does it for secondary entry in years 7, and 12.

How many points do I need to collect? 

Some schools will require 4 points, and some will ask for 6 points. Please make sure you check with each school you are applying to.

How do I collect points at Kehillat Nashira?

You can collect points by:

  • attending services; and/or
