Help support Judaism education around the country

4 October 2018

Liberal Jews are encouraged to join the Board of Deputies accreditation scheme, which aims to support Judaism education around the country.

The idea of the scheme is to create Judaism ambassadors – who will offer educational presentations about Judaism as a living faith to schools and other educational settings in the non-Jewish world.

In the pilot scheme, mentors will be made available to support and accredit ambassadors who are delivering education to both children and adults in the regions.

They will impart presentation skills, effective use of artefacts and knowledge of Judaism. They will also help with how to deal with difficult questions and preparation for school visits.

The scheme will be rolled out around the country over the next 12 months. During this period the Board of Deputies aims to train 40 fully accredited Judaism ambassadors.

Liberal Judaism’s senior rabbi, Rabbi Danny Rich, said: “It is important that British schoolchildren receive visits from practising Jews from all denominations. Therefore I encourage Liberal Jews to sign up to be part of this very worthwhile Board of Deputies initiative.”

If you would like to be involved in the pilot, please email jewishliving@bod.org.uk.
