Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue
1457 Griswold St, Detroit, Michigan 48226
What makes someone a Jew? In 2017/5777, the major denominations have very different answers. This has implications for everything from who is counted in a minyan, to who may move to Israel under the Law of Return, to which rabbis will officiate at marriages, to the Jewish identity of our children.
On Friday evening we will hear from members of our community about how they understand their own Jewish identity and the joys and struggles they have faced. On Saturday we will study the implications of the positions of the major denominations in the United States and the recent conversion bill in Israel.
Both programs will take place after Shabbat services. Services begin on Friday evening at 7:00 pm, followed by dinner and the discussion. Services begin on Saturday morning at 9:00 am, followed by lunch and the discussion. Free and open to the community.
