RE

 

Lots of religions have rules to live by that are written in sacred texts. For Jews their rules are stored in the Torah their holy book.  Watch this this clip and think about: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zjkq6sg

How many rules are in the Torah?

How many different books are in the Torah?

Task

Listen to the story in the clip again if you need to.  Draw a picture from the story in 2Create Torah.  Answer these questions underneath.

What do you think the meaning of the story is?

Give an example of how you could show it in your own life?

Challenge

Why is that meaning of the story still important today?

What would happen if people did not follow the meaning?
