Why is the Torah so important for Jewish people?

Within this unit, pupils will build on their learning about the Jewish worldview and way of life. They will build on their understanding that Jews are a diverse group of people by investigating Census data and reflecting on the different cultural heritages of British Jews. They will investigate the centrality of Torah through examining how a Sefer Torah is constructed, it’s place within the synagogue and how different Jews may interpret the Torah in diverse ways. They will consider how interpretation of Torah influences dietary choices. Finally, they will reflect on how Jewish practice is being adapted in the light of current thinking on gender and climate. This unit is part of the RE Today Primary RE Curriculum, accessible only to NATRE Primary and Cross Phase School Enhanced members.
