About us

Judaism for Schools provides lively and engaging workshops and assemblies that bring Judaism and Jewish history to life.
Our director and lead educator, Ruth Jampel, brings her extensive knowledge and enthusiasm to the classroom.

  • Our open manner encourages questions and discussion
  • Community cohesion is at the heart of what we do, making explicit links with Christianity and Islam, emphasising what we share rather than what separates us
  • Positive impact on interfaith relations, pupils’ self-knowledge, and their sense of self
  • British values of mutual respect, tolerance, and individual liberty are stressed
  • We meet your curriculum needs in a fast-paced engaging manner
  • Authentic artefacts, clothing and craft activities bring the sessions alive
  • Students get the chance to ask those questions that text books and the internet can’t answer!
  • SACRE and Diocese of Westminster learning objectives are met
