Year 2 visit Bowdon Synagogue

On Monday morning, as part of their work about Judaism, the Year 2 boys visited Bowdon Synagogue. Judy and Sam showed the boys around, explaining the dietary laws, the observance of the Sabbath and some of the 613 commandments that Jewish people should follow each day. Tommy and Alex tried on the kippot (skull cap) and Tallith (prayer shawl) that boys wear whilst praying and Theo was allowed to open the Ark where the precious Torah Scrolls are kept. 

The boys thoroughly enjoyed the trip and learned a lot, as did the teachers and parents who came along too!
