What do Judaism and Islam have in Common?

"The Lord our God is one Lord!"

Considering all that followed from this statement, Jewish tradition left not only Christianity but also Islam a fertile legacy. But is the Islamic prohibition of pork consumption similar to kosher cuisine and the Jewish dietary laws? And what does circumcision mean to Jews and Muslims?

In the course of this tour, a rich picture of Jewish traditions – from the Torah scroll to the spiderman kippah –  unfolds, providing the basis from which parallels and differences to Islam and Christianity are then considered. Looking at and handling everyday and ritual objects inspires the children and young people to discuss the different forms of religious life.
