We visit a Jewish school where most pupils are non-Jews The King David Junior and Infant School is the only Jewish school in the West Midlands. Only 35% of the pupils are Jewish, half are Muslim, and the remainder a mix of Sikhs, Hindus and Christians. Learning Hebrew as a modern foreign language in support of their Judaism studies, all the children learn important religious lessons which they can adapt and make relevant to their own beliefs. Every Friday afternoon, everyone comes together for collective worship at the Kiddush assembly where the whole school prays, sings and breaks bread together in recognition and celebration of the Sabbath.
