The Sanctuary Wall Mural

Ever wonder what the inside of a Jewish temple looks like? Are you curious about one of the world's oldest religions, Judaism? Join our GVSU Religious Studies program faculty as we visit Grand Rapid's Temple Emanuel, and are hosted and given a tour by Rabbi Schadick, The Rabbi will talk about Jewish history, show you artifacts housed in the temple, take you into the sanctuary, open the Ark of the Covenant and display the Torah scrolls. This is one of the great opportunities during your time at GVSU, to learn in-depth about the variety of religions within our diverse culture. For flexibility in departures following the tour, your own transportation will be needed there and back, so gather a group of friends and classmates and join us at the Temple.
