TO THOSE WHO GATHERED NEAR THE RIVER 120 YEARS AGO,
WE OFFER OUR THANKS, OUR PRAYERS AND OUR PROMISE

In 1861 a group of 17 men formed a Jewish congregation at Congress and St.
Ahtoine, not far from the Detroit River. We are the descendants of those who founded
Congregation Shaarey Zedek so long ago. Their hope, their spirit, their purpose endure in
us. And we pledge to pass on the same Jewish Tradition of faith and service to our own
children. Though our Congregation has grown: though our Sanctuary has been moved,
our commitment has not changed.
Over the next 10 days we culminate our celebration of the 120th Anniversary of our
founding.
From May 6 to May 13, an extensive Historical Exhibit of our history and American
Jewish history will be on display in the West Hall of our Synagogue, to which the entire
community is invited.
The history of the C6ngregation, "Congregation Shaarey Zedek: 1861-1981," written
by Eli Grad and Betty Roth and published by Wayne State University Press, will soon be
available for purchase.
On Saturday, May 8, 1982, Rabbi Irwin Groner will be recognized for his 25 years in
the Rabbinate and 15 years as spiritual leader of Congregation Shaarey Zedek at Sabbath
- Services and a tribute luncheon. Rabbi Wolfe Kelman, Executive Vice-President of the
Rabbinical Assembly, will deliver the sermon, and will present an Honorary Doctorate to
Rabbi Groner from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
On Sunday evening, May 9, our congregational family will gather together for a
special program of celebration for members and their families. Reminiscence and history,
song and pageantry, prayer and hope will intermingle as we remember our past with joy
and reaffirm our dedication to the future.
We express our gratitude to the Almighty who has kept us in life, sustained us, and
enabled us to reach this time of fulfillment.
