Years 3 and 4 at the Synagogue

1 Comment

Years 3 and 4 have been learning about Judaism and yesterday they went to Norwich Synagogue to find out more about it. They spent an informative morning learning about the features inside the synagogue, trying on traditional dress and learning some Hebrew. This was followed by a ‘Shabbat at home’ workshop, which involved being part of a Shabbat feast complete with candles, songs, ‘wine’ and Challah – Jewish bread.  They also learnt about kosher foods. The children enjoyed joining in with the all the activities and they asked very sensible questions.
