On Tuesday 7th February Class 3 visited the United Hebrew Congregation Synagogue in Gosforth. They spent the morning in the synagogue sharing the rich culture and history associated with the Jewish faith as well as specifics on how weekly services are taken.They had a guided tour of the synagogue including a discussion on key items including the Ner Tamid, everlasting flame, the Ark, The Torah scrolls, separate seating for male and female worshipers and the Bimah. They  were able to handle authentic Torah’s and identified Hebrew text within the synagogue and learnt the meaning of key terms. It was a very interesting day where the children came back to school with a host of new knowledge.
