Zoe from the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities (SCoJeC) has been in touch to offer some of their volunteers visiting your section meeting to run a session about Judaism and help with the faith element of the Scouting programme or for you to visit a Synagogue.
All of their sessions are free, age-appropriate, fun and active, and offer the chance for learners to ask questions, experience a bit of Jewish life and interact with Jewish people. They aim to represent all denominations of Judaism, giving a fair and honest representation of Judaism in Scotland today. Our aim is to give information, not to convert, and they ensure our sessions do not imply Judaism is the only correct religion, or that we know ‘the truth’. We clearly express that Judaism is one way of interpreting faith and God, and believe that respect and interfaith dialogue is of the utmost importance.
Interested, drop an email to Zoe.Author: Gary Bainbridge
