Our emotion is peaceful. Being peaceful means to be free and open. Peace can bring you a sense of belonging. When visiting a museum you’re expected to be informed, however it can also bring you peace. For example, religious artefacts can make you feel at home and feel more engaged with your culture/religion.

It is the Holy Book of Judaism that contains core teaching which people can use to calm themselves and connect to God as well as others around them. This spreads peace within a community.

The Torah is the key book that most Jewish people refer to, so it connects the Jewish community. It also connects  other communities such as the Islamic community, as they also refer to the Torah. Peace is therefore spread between communities as they have something in common.

This is a coffee set with gold covering. The matching cups were brought from Aden. The set is used to make the traditional Eastern-style coffee.

Sitting together as a group whilst having a drink could spread peace. This is because people come together and relax.
