What do you see?
We can see a man wearing a top hat. We can also see a woman holding a bouquet of flowers. Look closely, what do you see?
What do we know?
This is a photograph of the opening of the Llanelli Hebrew Congreation in 1909 by various officials including Chief Rabbi Hermann Adler. Rabbi Adler was the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire from 1891 – 1911.
What do you wonder?
We might wonder who the other people in the photograph are? We might wonder how many synagogues Rabbi Adler helped to open? What do you wonder?
What responsibilities does a rabbi have?
Why do different countries each have their own Chief Rabbi?
