In this publication we have tried to present a broad and balanced picture of Jewish thinking and living, representative although not comprehensive, providing authentic, first-hand resources to use in the classroom. Our focus on Jews rather than Judaism seeks to avoid any essentialising of Jewish belief and practice.
It enables us to show something of the diversity of voices within Jewish communities, e.g. the everyday lives of teenagers (pp. 10–13) and festival practice with representatives from Orthodox and Progressive communities (pp. 8–9 and 18–23). We deal with some essential knowledge on branches of Judaism (pp. 4–5), key texts (pp. 6–7) and prayer (pp. 8–9).
