Leeds - Heritage centre will explain faith
Schools in Leeds will be able to use a new centre to teach pupils about Jewish culture and traditions. The Jewish Heritage Centre for Children features a 19th-century East European village, a modern 21st-century kosher play kitchen and supermarket.
It will use arts and crafts, cookery, music, drama and computer software to bring Judaism to life for the public.
"We wanted something more permanent and available for the wider public to learn about Judaism and see how Jewish people live," said co-ordinator Ruth Bell. "There's a lot of ignorance, so what better way to learn more than to come along and see for yourself?"
