Holocaust Memorial Day Baking Activity

fun kitchen recipeFollowing on from yesterday's lesson on Holocaust Memorial Day, Mrs Wilkinson suggested students might like to try baking a traditional Jewish food and encourages learning about other faiths through food.

Mrs Wilkinson said,

"Food is intrinsic to Jewish ritual, life and culture around the world. Jewish food has also been shaped by the diverse experiences of the Jewish diaspora across the world, and by the countries, they lived in. Jewish culture includes a wide range of symbolic foods: latkes at Hanukkah, hamantaschen at Purim, charoset at Passover, and challah on Shabbat."

Here's a recipe that is important to the Jewish community, to encourage learning about and celebrate the lives and cultures of those who were victims.
