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.
