|YEAR 4 GALLERY
In Year 4 we have been learning about Judaism and all the different festivals that Jews celebrate, such as Shabbat, Hanukkah, Passover, and Sukkot. we made dreidels and Sukkot tents.
A Dreidl is a four-sided spinning top, played during the Jewish Festival of Hanukkah. Each side of the dreidel bears a letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
Sukkots are a three sided hut-like structures that the Jews lived in during the 40 years of travel through the wilderness after the exodus from Egypt. Sukkot is celebrated by building a sukkah. Jews are required to eat in the sukkah for eight days, and some people even sleep in the sukkah for the duration of the festival. The sukkah is decorated and the first day is considered a holy day in which most forms of work are forbidden.
