A day at the Jewish Museum

November 14, 2019

On Tuesday 12th November Year 7 spent a day at the Jewish Museum in Camden. In the morning we took part in a workshop entitled ‘The Torah – A way of Life’. We learnt about the different groups within Judaism and were able to handle a number of religious and cultural artefacts. We also learnt how to write our names in Hebrew. After lunch we were given a tour of the galleries and found out about the celebration of Shabbat. Zipporah, an Orthodox Jewish lady spoke to us about how she prepares for the holy day and the importance of the meal on a Friday evening. Well done to Year 7 for your interest and for the excellent questions you asked!
