On Wednesday and Thursday of Week 5, each of the Year 8 classes journeyed to the Jewish Museum and Synagogue in St Kilda as part of their Religious Education study of the Life and Times of Jesus. While at the museum, the students learned a great deal about Jewish beliefs and rituals, history and the Jewish year. They also toured the Synagogue and participated in a Shabbat blessing with some bread and grape juice. While there, the students engaged beautifully, asking and answering questions. They are now using much of what they discovered as they undertake their assessment task for this subject.
Special thanks to the Jewish Museum for hosting us, and to the staff who attended.
