Operation Understanding Youth Tour
November 18, 12:30 - 4:30 P.M.
The 2012 Operation Understanding Interfaith Youth Tour will be held on November 18, 12:30 - 4:30 p.m. The annual Youth Interfaith Tour of diverse houses of worship – “Operation Understanding” – is an effort to encourage interchange, interaction, and dialogue among individuals of varying faith traditions. The Tour, which is held on a Sunday afternoon in the fall each year, has been enormously popular and successful since its inception in 1981.
Operation Understanding brings together middle school and high school students to afford them an opportunity to learn about some of the different religions in Tulsa. No proselytizing is allowed. As the group visits the houses of worship, the clergy will speak to them and answer questions. We hope this experience will help the students understand, appreciate and respect differences in religion.
