“I started leading visits of local schoolchildren to the synagogue as a way of helping to counter the negative impressions about Jews and Judaism that are out there in the press and (more recently) electronic media. It is very rewarding, after a session, to hear them say how much they have learned or how much they enjoyed it. And the positive comments of the teachers and accompanying adults are a further bonus.”
