17th October 2019
I am writing to inform you of a Religious Studies visit that is taking place on the afternoon of Wednesday 23rd October for all Lower Transits.
As a part of our study on ‘Identity’ we have been focusing on aspects of Judaism and this includes a visit to the Oxford Synagogue.
We will be walking to the synagogue so girls will be expected to wear sensible school shoes and have a coat with them in case of rain.
A member of the Oxford Jewish community will talk to us about their faith as well as showing us around the synagogue. The girls will have the opportunity to ask questions and develop a greater understanding and appreciation of Judaism and the important role that it plays in people’s lives. I am sure your daughter will be enriched by this experience.
With best wishes,
Mrs Christine Crossley
Head of Religious Studies
