Judaism Workshop

In school we are learning about Judaism, and as part of our studies Year 5 participated in a workshop about the Jewish faith. During the afternoon the children looked at the Torah, learnt how to write their names in Hebrew and drew sketches of various artefacts including a mezuzah’s decorative box.

The children learnt many facts about the Jewish faith including the links between the Islamic, Christian and Jewish faiths;  that Hebrew writing goes from right to left and that the Holy version of the Torah is written on animal skin with a quill and takes a year to complete.

Year 5 had a great time and developed a great understanding of the Jewish faith.
