Learning about Judaism

On Wednesday 14th October, Ruth Jampel visited St Teresa's to teach our children more about the Jewish faith. KS1 and KS2 pupils took part in an assembly which was an introduction to Judaism. Then Y3/4 pupils took part in a workshop learning about Shabbat (The Jewish Day of Rest) and family life.  Our Y5/6 pupils learnt about the Torah (the Holy Jewish Text) and Bar/Bat Mitzvah. All of the children enjoyed this hands on learning and finding out more about another faith - seeing the similarities and differences to our Catholic faith.
