Today we are learning all about Shabbat, the Jewish celebration of the day of rest on the 7th day, which is celebrated on Saturday. Below are a selection of videos explaining the ways that Shabbat is celebrated in a synagogue, at home, and how it is closed at sunset on Saturday.

For your activity I have written 3 questions below for you to try and answer. You can answer them using full sentences but also with pictures if you like.

1. How do Jewish people celebrate Shabbat at a synagogue?


2. What is special about how Jews celebrate Shabbat at home?


3. Why is Shabbat important to Jewish people?
