Year 8 RE trip to the Jewish Museum
Year 8s took part in a workshop on Kosher and Shabbat in the Jewish Museum
On 14/11/22, Year 8 students went to the Jewish Museum in Camden to dive deeper into Judaism through two workshops. In the Kosher workshop, the students went into depth on the different mitzvot (commandments) in the Torah which link to why Jews keep kosher. They explored how Jews, depending on their denomination, might not keep kosher. During the Shabbat workshop, they learn the significance of the symbolism through the tradition as well as the importance of family and community. The students (and teachers) enjoyed eating the challah! They ended with a fantastic Q&A session where the museum allowed the students to explore their curiosity. This was an enriching experience for all the students and was a perfect opportunity to finish the Judaism topic.
