The Elves have been learning about Jewish beliefs about God and 'The Shema'. Jews believe in one God, the creator of the Universe who cares for us all. 'The Shema' is a special Jewish prayer/declaration of faith that Jews say three times a day. The Elves thought of their own special prayers that they could say every day. They wrote their prayers and then we used tea to brush onto the paper, so that their own Shema looked ancient like the ancient religion Judaism. Some of the children even chose to write their prayer right to left as it would appear in Hebrew in the Torah.
