Learning about Judaism

In Year 5 this week in RE we have been learning about Judaism. Today we were finding out about what Jewish people have in their homes. One thing we found out is that when Jewish enter their home they touch a Mezuzah to remind them God is with them. This afternoon we made our own Menuzahs.
