Judaism in Year 5

This term we have been learning about the Jewish religion and how it is celebrated. We have looked at the different Synagogues around the country and the treasures they hold inside, such as the Sidhar, Torah, Ark and Eternal Flame. Today we learnt how to play a game that is often played during Hanukkah. It uses a dreidel (which is similar to a die) which is spun, if it lands on a certain symbol you either have to put in a sweet, take half the sweets or if you spin ‘gimel’ you can take the lot! We had a lot of fun with this.
