Year 6 Synagogue Visit.

Today forty Year 6 pupils travelled to Bristol to visit the Bristol and West Progressive Jewish Synagogue as part of their RE studies on Judaism.  Our host, Iris, was very friendly and informative and helped the children to further understand what it is like to live as a part of a Jewish family in England and how and why the synagogue is important to her faith community.  The pupils were able to observe the Torah scroll and see the English translations of Hebrew in the prayer books.  The pupils asked amazing questions and showed great knowledge from their lessons.  At the end of the visit, the pupils sang a song about Shabbat Shalom and were treated with a taste of plaited Challah bread.
