Project Impact

One primary teacher in Leicestershire who organised a Faith Visit to Leicester with the SDSA said “We had a wonderful day in Leicester, going to the Leicester Orthodox Synagogue in the morning, followed by a really interesting afternoon.  The children had their lunch and a session about Passover in the SDSA classroom with the Rabbi.  It was an ideal base for our visit.”
