Special Places: Synagogues
The special place we are learning about this week is called a Synagogue. A Synagogue is a place where Jews meet to worship and pray to God. In Hebrew a Synagogue is called Beit Knesset, which means 'a house of gathering'.
In a Synagogue Jews carry out the Jewish services, which consist of prayers and sometimes special actions.
Watch the video below and afterwards talk with children about what they see. What do you think makes this place special? What did they like about this special place? Lots of talking opportunities and new words as they watch.
