An Exploration into Religion: Judaism

Our new PYP unit central idea is that "Religions help people express their beliefs and values." We will examine

  • similarities and differences of world religions
  • how symbols, artifacts and architecture are used to help people with their expression
  • why traditions and rituals exist in religions
We will start with Judaism since it is the first monotheistic religion. Students are going to continue working on their research skills with a focus on organization of content and thorough notes taken in shorthand. Some of the resources we will use during this focus are going to include these videos:

BBC: My Life, My Religion: Judaism

Judaism Core Beliefs and Values

The Story of Judaism
