Year 4 trip to Holland Park Synagogue

Year 4 learnt all about Jewish worship and prayer. We had a look at what is found inside a synagogue and  discussed a few denominations of Judaism with the Rabbi. Year 4 enjoyed finding out more about the religion and studied the layout and features of this important place of worship. The children were amazed when looking at several Torah Scrolls decorated with ornate finials and crowns and they were very keen to examine these more closely. A parchment of scroll was passed around so the children could feel its waxy texture and study the Hebrew script, written from right to left.
