Year 7 trip to a Synagogue
A trip to the Leicester Hebrew Congregation Synagogue gave Year 7 pupils a fantastic insight into Judaism.
Pupils learnt about the key features of the Synagogue and how its Jewish community worship in the building. They were also able to see the various ceremonial objects relating to Judaism and were shown the Torah scrolls, discovering how they are written, when they are used, and what is contained within them.
The trip brought to life this term’s work on different religions and the importance of the Synagogue within the Jewish faith.
