From Hastings to Home
February 27 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Maimonides Society is thrilled to partner with the Jewish Historical Society of Michigan on this interesting discussion about Detroit’s early Jewish history.
From Hastings to Home takes guests on a journey through time exploring the beginnings and growth of Metropolitan Detroit’s Jewish Community. The presentation begins in the 1760s with the arrival of the first Jewish settlers and follows the movement of the community, up to the 1950s. Using slides and film, the narration includes explorations of the obstacles and opportunities the Jewish community faced and mounted, why they came to the area and where they settled.
