In our RE lessons this week we are learning about Judaism. We began by learning about the Jewish Holy Book and the Torah scrolls. We learnt the names of the 5 books of the Torah: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. We watched videos explaining how revered the Word of God is and how Jews show respect when handling and reading from the Torah. We designed our own Sefer Torah (cover for the Torah) using a selection of Jewish symbols. Using a video from the Lyfta website, we watched how a Jewish girl in Denmark prepared to make her Bat Mitzvah - a ceremony marking the transition into adulthood for young Jews. We concluded our week, explaining how we thought Jewish boys and girls would prepare for their Bar Mitzvah (boys) / Bat Mitzvah (girls) and how they might feel about this special ceremony.
