HOUSE OF WORSHIP TOURS

​Guided tours of synagogues, temples, churches, mosques, gurdwaras and more. Also popular with secondary schools, participants can talk with practitioners, ask questions, and observe rituals.

 

Tour the world religions in synagogues, temples, churches, mosques, gurdwaras, and more. At each location, community representatives will guide us through their place of worship, answer questions, and share their personal perspective. 

 

In some cases, there will also be an opportunity to share food and to observe ritual.

 

You will see whole new communities and their traditions in a way that brings them to life.
