Form 4 thoroughly enjoyed their recent visit to Croydon Synagogue where they were able to see many features that they have been learning about in school, including the Ark, some Torah scrolls, a mezuzah, a variety of menorahs, an eternal light and a bimah. If you don’t know what any of these are….just ask Form 4!
Members of the synagogue gave presentations about Passover (Pesach), Sabbath (Shabbat), Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The children were shown many Jewish artefacts, tasted matzo and challah bread and even learnt a bit of Hebrew!
