Teach Islam in our schools, says Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis
by Simon Rocker
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis has recommended that Jewish schools teach Islam as part of the new GCSE religious studies curriculum which requires them to teach a second faith.
Rabbi Mirvis and other Orthodox groups had originally lobbied against the changes to the course, which come into effect next September.
But he has now made a virtue of necessity and said that teaching Islam will give children the opportunity to learn about a "poorly understood" religion.
