Tours of the Renewed Spaces
You may have had the opportunity to make your way through the spectacular new and renewed spaces at one of the two occasions where guided tours were offered: at our Housewarming on Sunday, December 2, and on Monday, January 14, just before the lecture by David Frum. Altogether, over 150 congregants have explored the building with one of the delightful members of our team of volunteer docents.
While the descriptive article about the space in the Commemorative Booklet is, in essence, a reader’s tour of the new space, an in-person guided group tour offers an illuminating, hands-on experience that will thoroughly enhance your appreciation and understanding of the project.
A building is also work of art, and just as a museum visit is enriched by the insight and interpretation a docent or audioguide can provide, you’re likely to miss some of the most exciting and interesting features of the project if wandering through alone.
If you missed the opportunity to take one of our guided tours or you’ve cast your eyes around the Atrium while making your way to the Sanctuary on a Shabbat morning and seek the insight of an interpretative experience you’ll be happy to know that additional tours will be offered in the near future, after services on Shabbat morning as well as after some community events. Stay tuned for more details about upcoming tours very soon.
If you’re interested in training to become a guide of our renewed spaces, we’d love to have you on our team! Please share your name and contact info with us and we’ll get in touch with you. Contact Tema Smith, Director of Community Engagement, at [email protected].
