Pupils en­joy visit to syn­a­gogue

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Pupils at Cathkin High en­joyed a trip to Giffnock and New­lands Syn­a­gogue.

The visit was part of the higher and na­tional 5/4 RMPS world re­li­gion sec­tion.

Teach­ers Mrs Col­li­gan and Mrs Payne took their classes to meet with Ian Leifer, a Jewish mem­ber of the Shul, who took them on a tour round the place of wor­ship.

He then ex­plained some key facts about the re­li­gion and some of the cel­e­bra­tions that the Jewish peo­ple carry out.

The pupils en­joyed both the talk from Ian and the hands on as­pect of the syn­a­gogue when Ian left religious arte­facts out on the ta­ble for the pupils to look more closely at.

Mrs Col­li­gan was im­pressed with the trip, adding:“This is the se­cond year we have stud­ied Ju­daism at higher and na­tional 5/4, and this trip re­ally brought alive the be­liefs, the val­ues and the prac­tices that make Ju­daism so in­ter­est­ing to teach.

“We would love to thank Ian for his in­valu­able speech that will re­ally aid the pupils in their fi­nal exam.”
