Halloween is the New Purim

DCMH and Repair the World partnered to throw your classic purim costume party!

Detroit Jews For Justice Purim

DJJ threw a purim party and presented a "schpeel" where they used the purim story to compare our current political system to the story of Purim, specifically as it relates to the appointment of Betsy DeVos to Education Secretary (where DeVos was the impersonation of Haman). Food and drinks were served.

Getting Turnt on Torah

Noam Gross from Partners in Torah taught us the whole Jewish history from creation to now. That's 6000 years in just 60 (ish) minutes.

Deeper Roots, Wider Branches: A Tu B'Shvat Celebration

Gather in community for an experiential Tu B’Shvat seder (ceremony) that will re-connect us to the environment and take us on a journey from the physical world to the spiritual world. We will delight in p’ri ha-etz (the fruit of the trees), and celebrate the season together with music, poetry, and learnings from some of Detroit's most dedicated environmental changemakers and activists.

Havdallah Pizza Night

We celebrated havdallah at our neighbor's house. He and his wife are opening an artisan pizza shop in our neighborhood. We brought a group of 15 people to his house to taste test the pizza!
