6th Graders Visit Local Synagogue

6th graders continued their study of world religions today with a visit to and tour of local synagogue Congregation Beth Israel with Rabbi Tom. They learned about the building's history (the city actually took over their original space for a post office and made them move the building back in 1904). Rabbi Tom talked about many Jewish traditions and special days, and taught the students important Hebrew words. Students were allowed to look at the Torah and Tandem students who attend CBI got to answer some questions. 6th graders were enthusiastic learners about Judaism, and really enjoyed their visit to CBI and Rabbi Tom.
