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.

Good, you wrote down a lot of interesting facts about the Jewish Synagogue. I have never seen the Tora before, the handwriting is quite impressive.
