World Faith Week: Judaism (25th February – 1st March)

25th February 19

As part of our World Faith Week, this week we celebrated the religion of Judaism.

Each year group focused on a different aspect of Judaism, including the festivals of Hanukkah (the Feast of Lights), Rosh Hashanah (New Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and Pesach (Passover), as well as Shabbat (the Sabbath) and the Torah (religious text).

The girls also learned all about the importance of the synagogue, the Jewish holy place of worship. Led by a Rabbi (literally translated as a teacher), Jewish communities gather here for educational and social events. The idea of family is central to Jewish life, with many rituals and festivals taking place in the home. However, the synagogue forms the focal point of public religious life.
