Tiyul to Shul


Tiyul to Shul was designed to utilize the community-building aspect of Shabbat while simultaneously taking into account the reality that suburban life depends on automobile travel. By encouraging some element of walking in the company of others to synagogue (the Hebrew word tiyul is used here to denote walking with a purposeful goal), we believe that the simple act of strolling and chatting with fellow shul-goers fosters a greater sense of connection with the community. Individuals who live within a 1-2 mile radius of the synagogue often opt to walk at their own leisure, often with fellow synagogue-goers from the same neighborhood. Individuals who live at greater distances arrive at the “Park and Walk” areas at their own leisure, and walk to the synagogue from there on their own or together with fellow worshippers by mutual arrangement.
