Emanu-El Launches 2019 Summer Tours

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursday 12 – 1 pm, 1461 Blanshard Street, Victoria BC — Every summer, many tourists visit our beautiful synagogue, the oldest Canadian synagogue in continuous use, to explore its unique history, architecture and restoration with our  knowledgeable guide, Amber Woods.  It is a thrill to see how visitors are so fascinated by their visit to our shul. Please encourage your summer visitors to experience Victoria’s Jewish roots by taking one of our shul tours. If they wish to find out more about the Jewish experience in early Victoria, we recommend the gentle walking tour Not Just a Little Bit of Olde England.
