The Rabbi is very engaging with all the children. It is always lovely how he draws on any child's religious experiences or beliefs and makes them relevant and important to the workshop. (Rachael Parsonson, class teacher)
The abundance of knowledge the Rabbi shared with the children at an appropriate level of learning was great, sharing jokes and interacting well with them. He also made good links with other religions that helped our multi-cultural catchment, as well as the British Values we hold here. The children also really enjoyed the prayer shawls, kippurs and the range of resources used. (Kathryn Barnes, class teacher)

"the Rabbi was kind and happy" year 4 pupil
"he made me feel happy" year 5 pupil
"I really enjoyed it when the Rabbi was telling us about peoples names" year 4 pupil
"I liked seeing the hats and things and we were allowed to try them on" year 3 pupil
I was totally in awe of the Rabbi's knowledge of other world religions and the way he engaged with our children of different faiths but also made the children who have yet to find their faith feel that was ok too.

Pitched the talk PERFECTLY for our children who have behaviour difficulties, ASD and ADHD. Kept them interested throughout. Absolutely BRILLIANT!
(Mary Farmer, class teacher)
The children really enjoyed the sessions and gained a greater understanding of worship in the synagogue. The Year 4 lead teacher said to me that the Rabbi was able to adapt his style of teaching to suit our cohort of children, who are predominantly Muslim and Christian, and he was able to draw comparisons between these faiths and the Jewish faith to make it even more engaging and relevant for them. We appreciate the effort that the Rabbi made during his visit to our school.
