Make plans to attend the upcoming Ten Commandments Hike sponsored by the Southeast Louisiana Council and taking place on the Uptown streets of New Orleans. This interfaith hike has ten stops along its route at various houses of worship where one of the Ten Commandments is revealed to the hikers. The hike will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. at the New Orleans Jewish Community Center (5342 St. Charles Avenue). Street parking is encouraged nearby to the location at Jefferson Avenue and Leontine Street. Other stops will include representatives of the Catholic, Protestant, Islamic and Jewish faiths.  Participants will receive a special event patch, a streetcar token and water.

PLEASE NOTE; Hikers must provide their own lunches. No hot meals will be served during the lunch break. The route for younger Cub Scout-age participants is four miles mostly along historic St. Charles and Carrollton Avenues and, once it ends, participants will board streetcars to return to the starting point. The hike is intended to foster understanding of different faiths, breed religious tolerance, and promote the 12th Point of the Scout Law (“A Scout is Reverent.”) while also encouraging physical fitness.  The hike is open to everyone including all Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturers, Scouters, parents, siblings, and friends. Registration, parental consent/health forms are required to be filled out in advance.  This is a very popular event and space is limited, so register online or send in your registration form to

This is a walking tour lasting from 10 a.m. until 4:30 pm. that will visit ten houses of worship mostly along St. Charles Avenue in the Uptown area. A discussion of one of each of the 10 Commandments will ensue at each house of worship as participants view the architecture and witness the magnificent structures along the trek, while celebrating the 12th Point of the Scout Law (“A Scout is Reverent.”)
