Y3 Synagogue Trip
On Thursday 10th October, Year 3 visited the United Hebrew Congregation synagogue in Leeds as part of the Judaism unit that we are learning about in RE.
We were given a talk about some Jewish rituals such as: Bar and Bat Mitzvah, the weekly observance of Shabbat, the observance of the Ten Commandments and much more. We were also shown the Holy Ark and the Torah scrolls and had a chance to examine the yad (pointer) which is used when reading the Torah.
This visit gave us a wider understanding of what happens inside a Jewish place of worship and Jewish traditions.
