Bus Departs from Congregation Shaarey Zedek

Returning by 4:30 p.m.

Join JHSM for a docent-led bus tour of three Detroit churches, each of which is a former synagogue. The caretakers of these historic houses of worship have carefully preserved the buildings, and many of the Jewish symbols and art. Blended together with their own religious symbols these buildings are a tribute to our forefathers and foremothers and honor both religious traditions. You will be in awe of each building’s interior!
