During our topic of special books we have learnt about the Torah, the Bible and the Qur’an. Over the last two weeks we have learnt that a synagogue is a space for worship and prayer for Jewish people. We learnt all about the Torah and how special it is to Jewish people.
When we visited Bushey United Synagogue we were very lucky to see the beautiful Ark where the Torahs are kept safely. We learnt that the Torah is held with wooden handles to stop anyone from touching the paper.
