The “Giorgio Coen” Jewish school provides basic training on the principles and practice of Judaism and aims to strengthen the Jewish identity of our children. Led by trained teachers and teachers, it offers lessons in Judaism and Hebrew language, with mother tongue teachers. Lessons in Judaism include, among other things, those on Shabbat and holidays, on the stories of Torah and Midrash, on ethics and the Mitzvot and on the history of Israel.
