Places of Worship

Places of Worship. Choose either the Synagogue (Judaism), the Church (Christianity) or the Masjid (Islam). Describe the basic features of this place of worship. Try to find out about different examples within different branches (denominations) of the faith you have chosen (e.g. Orthodox vs. Reform synagogues). Try to explain the differences in terms of the beliefs of that denomination. ***

JUDAISM

Inside the synagogue, facing the ark

Jews worship in a SYNAGOGUE.

CHRISTIANITY

A selection of Christian Churches

Be aware that Christianity is a very varied faith. Not all Christians worship in the same way. For example you can see a video EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANITY and compare it to other Christians, such as ROMAN CATHOLICS or ANGLICANS.

ISLAM

The BBC site has a good video on How the Mosque is Used that you can look at.
