Our Torah Scrolls

Following our work about books that are special to us, and the Bible that is special to Christians, we have been finding out about The Torah. The Torah is very special to Jewish people.  A Torah scroll is made from sheets of parchment, which is made from the skin of a kosher animal. It is written by hand in Hebrew by a professional scribe, called a sofer.  Hebrew is read right to left.

We made our own versions of The Torah (not out of animal skin though!). We drew pictures and wrote about things that were special to us. Have a look –
