Judaism is inadequately portrayed in religious education materials used in general schools, according to a report prepared for the government.
Textbooks contained inaccuracies and ignored the ethics and philosophy of the rabbinic tradition, the research team from Warwick University found.
“A particular issue was the failure of many of the resources to engage with the long tradition of Jewish thought over the last 2000 years,” the report said.
“Instead, the religion all too often comes across as the Old Testament religion that preceded Christianity.”
