Today we went to the Jewish Synagogue, a lady named Anna Van de Berg took us inside. We sat down inside and she told us about the Tora and the history the the Synagogue. The Japanese used the synagogue has a storehouse and a stable. The Japanese destroyed everything inside so they had to restore it. We got to see the scrolls of the Tora. It was really cool. The men and women are separated so as to not distract each other so the men sit on the bottom and the women sit on the second floor.

The Cultural Food Festival at HKA is a festival where we celebrate everyones cultures. We have a parade of the nations where everyone walks with there cultures onto stage and 1 person carries the flag. After the parade of the nations we all went upstairs and ate food from all over the world, most people brought in food from there country fo everyone to sample. My favourite part was the Japan table with the snow cone or shaved ice, I had 9 snow cones. Below is a picture of my class with there costumes on for the festival!
