Recently, as part of our RMPS programme two members of Scotland’s Jewish Community visited the school. Mr and Mrs Taylor, representatives of the Aberdeen Hebrew Congregation, spend all day working with classes from S1 to S4.
Pupils were given a really fascinating insight into Judaism – its traditions, rituals, practices, beliefs and values.
There was lots of classroom fun: a Jewish Wedding was enacted in classes as well as the synagogue Torah procession. Pupils also learned about the history of Judaism and about Judaism in Scotland today.
So successful was the day that Mr Mrs Taylor have promised to make their visit an annual part of KHS’s Religious, Moral and Philosophical calendar.
