The Scottish Council of Jewish Communities (SCoJeC) would like the following people for their assistance with “JOES Boxes”, an educational resource to increase the quality of Jewish education, deepen understanding, and make abstract ideas and people, real and living.
Prof Joe Goldblatt, who championed the boxes and enthusiastically sourced many of the items, commented: "The Pirke Avot teaches us that whilst we are not expected to complete the work we are neither free to refrain from starting the task. The Jewish Objects for Education in Scotland programme was launched in 2015 to combat antisemitic behaviour in Scotland through education.
Thanks to the strong and generous support from our donors in North America, Scotland, and beyond, this pioneering new programme has grown from strength to strength. We thank you for helping us start this important work and please accept our heartfelt thanks for you sharing your time time and treasure. Through education we believe we are together building a more just world, one child at a time."
