About the Program

Delving into the Museum’s permanent exhibitions as well as the neighbouring St Kilda Hebrew Congregation, this teacher learning opportunity will examine the  dimensions of Judaism as a contemporary religious tradition.

Of particular interest to VCE Years 11 and 12 teachers in Religion & Society or Texts & Tradition, this program will provide a comparative analysis of Judaism in relation to both Christianity and Islam.

Dimensions of Judaism as a Religious Tradition will allow you to see how the ancient and contemporary faces of Judaism are connected to each other.

This is an approved Category 3 Professional Development Program for the purpose of Accreditation to Teach in a Catholic School.
