Judea Reform Congregation

Last week we visited the Judea Reform Congregation where we listened to Rabbi Friedman share information about Jewish holidays, rituals, and beliefs. Ms. Saffo-Cogswell set up this field trip as an extension of what students are learning about in History. One thing Rabbi Friedman talked about was Torah.
