There Really Are Jews up There?: Northern Michigan's Jewish Life

Join Carol Ellstein (Petoskey's Temple B'nai Israel), Ginny Cymbalist (Sault Ste. Marie's Congregation Beth Jacob), Susan Burack (Houghton-Hancock's Temple Jacob), and Betty Line (Petoskey's Temple B'nai Israel) for an up-north escape.

Participants will discover rural Jewish life in northern Michigan, starting from Ezekiel Solomon’s 1761 arrival from Montreal and ending with descriptions of the six tiny, but mighty surviving congregations connected by 3 bridges and an international border. 

All four speakers are members of the L'Dor v'Dor Northern Michigan Consortium leadership team.
