Teaching Resources: Objects in Focus

Our new section of the Jewish Museum website, Objects in Focus, has been designed for you to use in the classroom. The Learning Team has chosen 15 objects from our collection for your class to focus on either before or after visiting the museum.

Enlarge the high resolution image of the object on your interactive whiteboard and use the designed focus questions to guide your students through describing and analysing the significance of the object and what it tells us about Judaism, Jewish History and Jewish culture. Visit the schools section of our website to explore the Objects in Focus pages.

Pre-visits and Advice

The Learning Team is on hand to give advice about workshops and to help tailor sessions to meet both your students’ and curricular needs. You are welcome to come in for a free teachers’ pre-visit and we can show you around the galleries and discuss selecting the best workshop for your students and offer guidance on filling in your risk assessment forms.

Call or email the museum and ask to speak to a member of the Learning Team.


Intensive in-service courses are available for teachers and trainee teachers covering subject knowledge, issues of planning, delivery and assessment of religious education, Holocaust education and the topic of immigration.

You can bring your team to the museum for an INSET day and the Learning Team will design a seminar to fit your needs. Activities include a tour of the museum galleries, object-handling and the importance of objects as springboards to discussion and the chance to ask your questions about Judaism, what it means to be Jewish today, and teaching about immigration and Holocaust. 

We can guide you on creative ways of delivering your syllabus and methods on how to use museum workshops and resources to achieve quality learning.
