Pilgrimage to Lubevitcher Robbe's grave and Crown Heights
deepens Detroiters' connection to Judaism and to God.

A World Apart Canes Closex

s

taff Writer Sharon Luckerman has been to New
York City many times, but never once considered
visiting Crown Heights, the center of the Chabad
Lubavitch community, or Boro Park, which has the
largest concentration of Orthodox Jews in the world.
But on June 23, she ventured to both neighborhoods
while accompanying Rabbi Elimelech Silberberg and 13 of
his congregants from the Sara Tugman Bais Chabad Torah
Center in West Bloomfield on a pilgrimage that included a
visit to the grave of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson,
the late, revered Lubavitcher Rebbe.
"I was expecting something like visiting a foreign coun-
try and instead I landed in my grandmother's backyard,"
says Luckerman, a secular Jew.
When Staff Photographer Krista Husa heard about
Luckerman's assignment, she requested to go, too. A non-
Jew, she was intrigued by the prospect of exploring a

lifestyle so different from her own and by the images a
walk through that world might yield.
The story of the Detroiters' spiritual journey and what
the experience meant to them is told vividly through words
and photographs.
