Loved the film
We very much liked the personal attention we received during the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable especially about the history of the relationship between Rabbi Cohen and Frank Lloyd Wright. We plan to return with our friends for another tour. Thank you.
Our guide was pleasant,mknowledgeable and accommodating. Beautiful building. Nice people.
Guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging.
Not only was the building sublime, our docent encouraged us at the end of our tour of the main sanctuary to take a little time to "just sit and think, and to take in the space". That was a refreshing first for an architectural tour for me.
Learned much new material, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, intriguing building.

Our guide Michelle was informative and gracious - She tailored her remarks to the needs/interest of our tour group of 4 people (no one in our tour group was Jewish; all were fans of Frank Lloyd Wright ) We spent 2 hours with Michelle who never appeared rushed in any way and answered all our questions that she could and refereed us to Helene for those she could not answer. She also took on a group of 4 more guest visiting from Holland adding them seamlessly to the original four and carefully accommodating their needs
Tour leader well informed and obviously committed to the congregation as well as to the building.
