What You Will See Inside a Synagogue


Product Description:

Grade 3-6 - This book provides a warm and thorough welcome to the centre of Jewish life, emphasising its core purpose as a house of prayer, learning, and community. Each appealing spread focuses on an aspect of synagogue life and practise, from the weekly Shabbat service to holidays and life-cycle events. The text is packed with detailed explanations; occasionally, they can be a bit overwhelming for children who might not be familiar with Judaism. Still, the book has a friendly tone and emphasises basic values such as the importance of learning and welcoming strangers. Numerous clear colour photos and pronunciation guides for Hebrew words are included. While the focus is on synagogues in the Conservative, Reconstructionist, and Reform movements within North America, the authors point out that Jews throughout the world practise their religion in synagogues. An excellent overview. - Teri Markson, Stephen S. Wise Temple Elementary School, Los Angeles
