Year 8 Religious Studies Trip to Synagogue

On Monday 10th, Tuesday 11th and Friday 14th March our Year 8 students had the opportunity to visit the Belfast Synagogue as part of their study of Judaism within Religious Studies.

Seeing the synagogue up close really brought the unit to life for our students. The pupils were able to see items that are key to Jewish worship such as the tallit, the kippah and Torah scrolls, as well as ask questions of the rabbi on many aspects of Jewish life.

The visit was very useful to the pupils and provided an insight into the faith that will be invaluable throughout their study, and our thanks go to Rabbi Singer and Mr Black for the opportunity presented to our pupils.
