Year 4 R.E – Judaism

May 23, 2024Religious Education

This half term we have been learning more about the Jewish faith. Our focus question has been ‘How do Jewish people show their commitment to God?’ We discussed different religious holidays such as Passover and learnt more about how these special occasions are celebrated. We learnt more about Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and the process of a young person showing their commitment to God in the Jewish faith. Finally, we spoke about a special time in November called Mitzvah Day. Around this time, it is common for Jewish families to commit their time to supporting in their communities, local projects and charities. We spoke about how this supports their commitment as well as their local community. We talked about how we can do good in the world.
