What does it mean to be Jewish today? What does it mean to be religious today, or to have a non-religious worldview today?
This study-set is suited to general key stage 3 work on Judaism. It provides material relevant to questions about Jewish identity in the twenty-first century, and which aspects of Jewish identity are important to Jews in the United States. It should extend students’ knowledge and understanding beyond the standard text books and, if they choose, beyond Judaism (in an extension research task, they choose a particular religion or non-religious worldview as the focus). It would suit an end-of-topic place, once students had secure basic knowledge of Jewish beliefs and practices.
