When I trudged into the brown colored courtroom, I felt every set of eyes look at me. I felt everyone waiting for me to do or say something that would get me punished without thinking twice.

It makes me feel a part of something bigger than I am, and all my traditions feel like a truth to me.

I looked around me, unable to take it in. Before my eyes, I saw two lifeless bodies drowning in a pool of their own blood. I pulled myself up to my feet, barely being able to stand up straight and I stumbled towards the first body I saw, following the drops of blood stained to the pavement.

In the Jewish religion, worship services take place at a synagogue, a building for prayer and the study of God, which replaces the ancient Temple. The synagogue is a very important place to me.
