Jewish Shabbat meal

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!
