On 23 August 2020, the Jewish Museum Berlin is opening its new core exhibition. Until then the museum will be closed for renovations.

Religion and Ritual. Are There Jewish Things?


The workshop “Religion and Ritual. Are There Jewish Things?” offers deeper insight into the diversity of Judaism today. Taking the Torah, the Holy Scripture of Judaism, as their starting point, students consider the significance of the Torah and the Hebrew language for Jews. What does everyday Jewish life look like today? And what is the interaction between the Scriptures and practice today?

The pupils describe objects and everyday items, consider what they meant and the life stories of their former owners. Through these deliberations, they also learn why museums collect objects.

The workshop covers basic knowledge of Judaism and explores the diversity of Jewish identities.
