Year 7s Begin Their Bnei Mitzvah Journey
On Wednesday 8 February, the Year 7 students visited the Jewish Museum of Australia in preparation for their upcoming Bnei Mitzvah Roots Projects. They learned new skills such as interviewing to record oral history and researching artefacts to gain insight into a person and period of time. Students also spent time in the exhibition One Man in His Time, which is a moving tribute to Henry Ritterman, created by his wife Hedy Ritterman, based on the many objects he collected over his lifetime. Jewish migration to Australia was also discussed during their fascinating visit.
