Kilburn Grange School visit Hampstead Shul
Kilburn Grange School visited Hampstead Synagogue in West Hampstead. Fifty children between the ages of 7-8 came to learn about Judaism. Two volunteers explained about the Jewish Festivals, religious services and the design of the synagogue building. They were fascinated by the Torah scrolls and wanted to know who made them and who wrote them. The final part of the tour was in the foyer of the synagogue where they were given explanations of the different memorials and plaques.
The children asked many interesting questions during the 90-minute visit. A worksheet had been prepared for the children, by the administrator of the Synagogue, to take back to school.
