Overview

This history of Detroit's enduring Jewish population tells the story of the community from its beginning: the first Jewish immigrants, the robust growth during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and the migration to the suburbs in modern times. Here are Detroit's Jewish neighborhoods, schools, synagogues, charitable institutions, and successful businesses. But most important are the people—the families and relationships, the famous and not-so-famous—that define the community and allow Detroit's Jewish population to thrive into the present day. Includes 400 photos, many not available elsewhere.
