Kaufman Interfaith Institute
Houses of Worship
Kaufman is excited to host our first time ever event "Houses Of Worship" where you can visit a Sikh Gurdwara, Hindu Temple and a Muslim Mosque to learn about the practices, traditions and rituals that each of these global religions practice. The leaders of these different houses of worship will give us a tour, share with us knowledge of their faith as well as provide opportunities for us to ask questions.
This is a great event for anyone who has never been to these houses of worship, for those of you looking to get a refresher on your knowledge or even just learn something new!
This is a free event and all are welcome so please feel free to bring your friends, family and other guests a long with you! Feel free to share the event with others too!
