The Jewish Way of Life is an interactive resource for use in upper primary and lower secondary schools that provides accurate information about Judaism and reflects the diversity of the Jewish community in the UK. It has been developed by the Pears Foundation, in association with the Board of Deputies of British Jews, and World ORT, and is supported by Learning and Teaching Scotland.

An independent evalutation of the resource, carried out among nearly 500 teachers and RE advisers in England and Wales found that:

 
*   96% of users found the resource highly relevant in supporting their teaching
 
*   94% indicated that their students had liked using the resource
 
*   82% agreed that the resource promoted greater understanding of people from other
    religions and cultures
 
*   73% rated the "Jewish Way of Life" as one of their top three resources for teaching
    Judaism or RE
 
*   73% felt the "Jewish Way of Life" helped teachers feel more confident about teaching RE.
