Workshop Let's meet a Jew

Workshop Let's meet a Jew

The Museum offers students participatory workshops aimed at discovering Jewish cultures. This workshop meets the expectations of the programs of the courses of philosophy and citizenship and religion in the current Belgian school programs. Several activities are offered: Jewish Rites and Rituals (10 to 20 years). This activity introduces students to the rituals and practices that can be part of the life events of a Jew or a Jewish family. The emphasis is placed on the common points between the social, cultural or religious identity of the students and the rites studied in this activity. Myths and facts (14 to 20 years). This activity offers to analyze several myths and stereotypes related to the Jews (conspiracy theories, deicide ...). The idea is to understand why these myths exist, to deconstruct them, to contextualize them. Students will develop strategies to identify and prevent them. This workshop is elaborated in partnership with the CEJI (a Jewish Contribution for an Inclusive Europe).
