Launch of Amidah and Aleinu Resources

The Amidah and Aleinu components of the ‘Pathways to Hashem’ Tefillah curriculum were launched on Tuesday 30th June 2015, along with a half day of training for Jewish Studies teachers from a range of Jewish primary schools in London. The structure and content of the resources were explored, including specific aspects such as a close reading of the Aleinu prayer to enable teachers to see its deeper meaning and significance. We also looked at optimum ways of using the curriculum in different school settings, including peer sharing, with schools sharing their own experiences of using the resources. Finally, we explored ways in which the resources can be used in a cross-curricular way, linking to Literacy, History, Geography, Science and SMSC (Spritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) skills. Teachers praised the “thoughtful and thought-provoking day” and appreciated the “fantastic resources” as well as the “opportunity to share and hear ideas from other teachers”.
