"We love living in Berkley — it's a
great community with wonderful,
walkable neighborhoods and a nice
downtown with everything we need."
The Adelmans live close to their
synagogue, Congregation Beth Shalom
in Oak Park, 15 minutes from down-
town Detroit and minutes from the
freeways to get everywhere else they
need to go. They also love living here
because the people around them
create a welcoming culture of kindness and provide a close-knit Jewish community offering
anything they need. This is the place they want to raise their daughter.
Eric is the director of Michigan Region BBYO. Karen is the membership sales manager for
the Detroit Zoological Society.
You can find the Adelmans spending time together at the park, the zoo and Eastern Market.
In the summer, they enjoy the beaches on Lake Michigan.
