The Ties that Bind
Visit two historical places of worship – Hong San See on Mohammed Sultan Road and Chesed-El Synagogue on Oxley Rise – and gain a deeper understanding of how they instilled a sense of belonging amongst the early immigrants of Singapore. Learn more about the communities – the Hokkiens and the Jews – that built these houses of worship, how these monuments met both spiritual and social needs of the communities, and how they have also functioned as “community centres” over the years.
