12th November 2018 Visit to the Synagogue
Acorns and Hawthorn had a fantastic trip to the Synagogue in Cheltenham. It really brought to life all the things that we have been learning about Judaism in the last few weeks. The first thing that we spotted was the Mezuzah in the doorway, and then when the door opened there was a Star of David hanging on the wall. We also saw the platform (Bimah) from which the Torah is read and the Ark where the Torah are kept. Before we left, we were treated to a lovely story about an apple tree which wanted to grow big enough to reach the stars. The children and staff would really like to thank the worshippers at the Synagogue for welcoming us into their community.
