Spiritual Sights in San Francisco

By Mariam Alkazemi

As many of you know, the annual convention for the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication will take place in San Francisco this summer.  Many media professionals and educators will visit the city, which is home to many world-renowned tourist attractions.  Other attractions may be less popular.

San Francisco is home to many sights that may be of interest to those in the Religion and Media Interest Group.  For example, an article put out by Religious Travel Group explains that it is home to Mission Dolores, Grace Cathedral, Contemporary Jewish Museum, and the Hua Zang Si Temple among many others sites for worship. Mission Dolores is located at 3321 16th Street. Grace Cathedral is located at 1100 California Street. The Contemporary Jewish Museum is located at 736 Mission Street. Hua Zang Si Temple is located at 3126 22nd Street.

Similarly, The New York Times described the city’s Buddhist heritage.  The article recommends several tourist destinations, including the Chinese Historical Society of America (965 Clay Street) and the Zen Center (300 Page Street).

For those less interested in sight-seeing, our interest group has several sessions to attend.  We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
