Year 11 RE Day
On Monday, Year 11 students visited the Plymouth Synagogue as part of their RE Day studies.
Built in 1792, it is the oldest synagogue still in use in the English speaking world. The students were given a talk on the history of the synagogue and gained an understanding of Judaism by local historian Jerry Sibley. They experienced the different roles that are undertaken during a Jewish service and examined the various symbols and customs involved. All the students enjoyed the experience and felt they had enhanced their knowledge of Jewish religion and customs.
