Three Loaves and One Hallelujah

Winter Vacation Program (in German)

The vacation program for children between 7 and 10 years starts with a tour through our exhibition Welcome to Jerusalem.

Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are very much alive in Jerusalem and have a long tradition. Home to the Jewish Temple, the Christian Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Muslim al-Aqsa Mosque, we explore Jerusalem as a holy city of the three great religions. It's all about rituals like prayer, the stations of the cross, and the significance of bread.

There are types of bread for every day and others that are baked and eaten only on certain festivals. On Erev Shabbat, Friday evening, many Jews bless and eat a challah (plural challot, braided loaves made from yeast dough with white flour). Bread as the Body of Christ illustrates the significance of the Holy Communion in Christianity. In Turkey, during the Ramadan month of fasting, Muslims eat Ramazan pidesi spread with egg and butter after sunset – a tradition that is also widespread in Germany.

After visiting the exhibition, we get comfortable in our workshop kitchen to bake and taste different types of bread that are part of religious rituals.
