Year 2 visit the Synagogue.

As part of our RE topic on Judaism, Year 2 visited the Sinai Synagogue.

We met a lady called Gwynneth, who showed us around the Synagogue. She taught us how to say “hello” in Hebrew and how to write the word. We tried on a kippah (skull cap) and a tallit (prayer shawl). Gwynneth showed us the Arc; this is where the Torah scrolls are kept.

Year 2 really enjoyed their visit to the Synagogue and seeing one of the opened Torah scrolls was a real highlight! We looked at the scroll and Gwynneth pointed at the words using the yad; we could not touch the writing because the oil in our fingers could smudge the ink. We did not want this to happen!
