As part of our RE topic we have been looking at how Jews celebrate Shabbat. This takes place every Friday night from sunset until Saturday night. It is a time where Jews are reminded of God creating the world and rested on the 7th day. They use this time to rest and spend time with family. They have a special ceremony where they say blessings, sing songs and eat a special bread called Challah. We made our own Challah bread- it was delicious!
