Workshops and Activities for Schools

The Museum of Jewish Padua offers various learning opportunities for children and teenagers with the aim of introducing them to various topics related to Jewish history and culture in an active and engaging way. The various educational workshops aimed at schools or large groups (upon request) propose to explore and approach specific topics from a different perspective, leaving room for moments of debate and cooperative learning. Therefore, the Museum aims to be a valuable educational destination for Outdoor Education, capable of providing new stimuli even to the youngest.

 

The proposals are divided here by topic: it will be our task to adapt them to the participants’ group! All educational workshops end with a visit to the Italian Synagogue, the current place of worship of the Community, to fully understand its fundamental elements.

 

Upon request, agreed in advance, it is possible to request the implementation of some of the workshops proposed at schools.
