Settlers to Citizens: A Tour of Historic Jewish Windsor

June 23, 2013 @ 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

| $36
Camp Yomee 1964

Sunday, June 23!  

Registration is now closed. 

 

The Jewish Historical Society of Michigan and Jewish Windsor are teaming up to explore and discover Windsor’s Jewish history.

All U.S. passengers must have a valid U.S. Passport, Passport Card or Enhanced Driver’s License. 

The communities of Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan have a unique relationship: international neighbors joined together by a mighty river, a bridge and a tunnel. From the moment Windsor’s first Jewish settler, Moses David, came from Montreal to the fur-trading post of Sandwich, the link to the two communities was established.  In the more than 200 years since, Windsor has held a unique place in Canada’s and North America’s Jewish history.

Spend the day exploring the Canadian “City of Roses” with JHSM and Jewish Windsor.  Price includes all fees, snack and lunch (dietary laws will be observed). 

Many thanks to the Ravitz Foundation and Sutts Strosberg LLP for their support of this international event.

Detroit-area passengers, buses will depart at 9:00 a.m. from Congregation Shaarey Zedek, 27375 Bell Rd., Southfield (returning at 3 p.m.)
All passengers will meet at the Windsor JCC.  We will re-board the buses and begin the tour at 10 a.m.  Windsor-area guests, please arrive at the JCC by 9:45 a.m. 1641 Ouellette Avenue, Windsor, Ontario N8X 1K9

Our tour is a sell-out!  Thanks for your participation.
