The boys came to heder before nine in the morning, and remained until eight or nine in the evening.
There was nothing in what the boys did in heder that I could not have done—if I had not been a girl.
On Fridays the heder pupils presented themselves in a body before the rosh-yeshibah himself, to undergo a similar examination.
Promptly when custom prescribed, Pinchus, the petted only son, was sent to heder.
The heder was the only beginning allowable for a boy in Polotzk, and to heder Joseph must go.
These developed later into the ivy leaf , or heder distinguentes.
I went to my brother's heder, sometimes, to bring him his dinner, and saw how the boys studied.
Attendance at the heder was compulsory for all children of school age, approximately from six to thirteen.
Joseph was the best Jewish boy that ever was born, but he hated to go to heder, so he had to be whipped, of course.
Joseph was in heder all day; the baby was a quiet little thing; Mashke was no worse than usual.
