A Plethora of Choices for Worship:
The affluent contiguous California municipalities of Belvedere and Tiburon are rich in more than per capita income. With a total of nearly 16 square miles between them and seven churches and one synagogue, they have one house of worship for every two square miles!
The synagogue is Conservative and the churches cover most major Christian sects, including Catholic and a range of Protestant churches, as well as a Christian Science Church. There is certainly no shortage of places to go to worship each week and participate in many additional activities in addition to worship.
