Spiro Ark is a London-based charitable organisation which organises Jewish cultural events and courses in Jewish History, culture and languages. It has been established by Nitza and Robin Spiro, well known for their pioneering work in Jewish Education in the UK.

Spiro Ark aims to teach and enthuse about Jewish History and Culture, both because of the intrinsic fascination of these subjects, and because of the central role of Jewish Education and learning about Jewish History and culture in maintaining a Jewish sense of identity in the 21st century.

History of the Spiro Ark
When we look at Jewish education today, the teaching of Jewish history, literature, philosophy, art, music, drama, the use of films, all these are accepted as legitimate and desirable elements in the teaching process. ...
Mission Statement

For the past three decades the name Spiro has been synonymous with the pioneering of new approaches to Jewish Education; both in general schools and for adults.

Our thrust has been not to accept that the widespread loss of Jewish identity among the majority is irreversible. Instead we have reached out to this majority.
