This history of the Detroit Jewish community begins with the first Jewish immigrants to the Motor City, Detroit’s amazing growth during the late 1800s and early 1900s, the war years, and finally the Jewish movement to the Detroit’s northern suburbs in the late twentieth century. Over 400 photographs are found in these pages, many of them one-of-a-kind.

The book features the Detroit Jewish schools, synagogues, neighborhoods, charities, and businesses that grew along with the city. But the Jewish people of Detroit are the true characters of this story with their vibrance and spirit. The Jewish Detroit book is a labor of love by the author, who has lived and worked in Detroit all his life.
