Judaism’s Western Wall in Constantine? 9 Feb 2014

Key Stage 2 children are learning about pilgrimage, and this week Helford Class made their own thoughts and prayers to include in our own Western Wall. Jerusalem’s Western Wall is a focal point for Jews because it is the last remaining part of a temple built on the site of numerous Old Testament events. It is traditional to write your own prayers onto a piece of paper that is then wedged into the cracks in the wall, and then it will be answered.
Helford Class children really enjoyed recreating their own pilgrimage, and some are waiting for their own prayers to be answered, or as one pupil put it “fly on the wind to be answered by God”.
