Ideas for use in class
  • This is more suited to older students as it deals with the apparent anti-Semitism of Martin Luther. Students could put themselves in the place of Peter Owen-Jones and speculate about how a Jew might respond to Luther's accusations. Then watch the Shabbat meal and comment on the response from Semyon. Consider three benefits of this attitude. Pupils could give a personal reflection on their own willingness to forgive insults.
