Judaism Week - Shabbat

Celebrating Shabbat

During this half term, the children in Year 2 have been learning about Judaism. On Friday we held our very own ‘Shabbat’ celebration and enjoyed sharing bread, like the Jewish ‘hallah’ bread, and joining in with the ‘kiddush blessing’.  We danced to some lovely Jewish music and reflected on the importance of the candles whilst doing the special action of drawing the light of the candle round our faces three times.
