The opening words of today’s Sidra ‘Lech Lecha’ – meaning ‘Go forth’ signal our forefather Avram’s journey and the beginnings of Jewish history.
School tours of the Central Synagogue
School tours of the Central Synagogue are rewarding experiences for all who take part.
Many school children benefit from a wide-ranging Religious Studies curriculum, in which they investigate the central elements of all the major world religions.
To bring the theory alive, we very much enjoy showing school groups around the Central Synagogue. We point out the main features common to all synagogues, as well as those unique to our own.
The tour generally lasts for 45 minutes, and includes an introduction to Judaism, the main features of the Synagogue and an explanation of many of the traditions that we abide by. The duration of the tour is flexible and we can modify the content or focus according to the needs of the visiting school party.
Interested in a school tour?
If you would like your school group to visit us, please contact Raquel in the Synagogue Office.
