On Monday afternoon Mrs Elijah came to school to talk to the children in Year 1 and 2 about Shabbat and her Jewish faith. Mrs Elijah showed us all the things she uses for Shabbat each week and showed us what she does every Friday night. We all got to taste the Challah bread and listened to her say her prayers and blessings.
