We have created the following materials for teachers planning visits to our synagogue. We hope that you will find them of use when preparing for your school visit or after having visited. They are not intended as a substitute for a visit by your school but to help you in teaching the subject of Judaism to children and young people and to enable you to get the most from your visit.
They have been created and made available to you by the generosity and hard work of one of our members, Mike Freedman, who was an RE teacher and is now a member of our School Visits team. (To visit his excellent website that has loads more information on Judaism devised especially for teachers just click this link).
