Year 12 General Religious Studies

At the end of February, as part of the General Religious Studies programme for Year 12, Rabbi Nathan Asmoucha from Shirley Synagogue came to speak to the girls about his faith and beliefs. He spoke of the key beliefs in Judaism, giving an insight into the origins and history of Judaism. He talked about Jewish worship, ethical principles and beliefs about the sanctity of life, his role as a Rabbi, food laws and kosher food, the differences between Hasidic Jews, Orthodox and Reform Jews and many other questions put to him by the girls. He ended his talk reflecting on the challenges faced by the Jewish community in Britain today.
