    assumed that my class would be looked at weird and treated funny because we were spectating their Jewish worship. However, after arriving in the sanctuary the people were very friendly and welcoming. Some even came up to us and shook our hands and told us they were glad to have us there. Sally Frank was very helpful and mentioned someone of the holidays we had learned about in class including Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Passover, and Sabbath. The sanctuary was absolutely breathtaking, the stain…

Also there was a wooden ark behind the podium and if you opened up the ark you would see where the Torah was stored. An interesting fact about the placement of the ark is it is facing were Jerusalem is…

    A synagogue is a house of Yahweh, a place to feel His presence, worship and joins a community of believers in prayer. Behavior in a synagogue should be appropriately respectful. Since the synagogue is considered a house of Yahweh, it is usually appropriate to wear nice clothes. So, for the Shabbat service, I wore slacks, long sleeve dress shirt, and tie. The outside of the synagogue was modest and beautiful. Upon entering the synagogue, you arrive in a beautifully decorated gathering area. The…
