Online Fundraising
To Help Improve
Downtown Synagogue
The Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue
has truly become the hub of Jewish life
in Downtown Detroit. Over the past two
years, its membership has grown more
than 25 percent to more than 250 mem-
bers. Each Friday night, 40-50 people
come for services, kiddush and camara-
derie. Hundreds come through its doors
each week. To accommodate the growth,
improvements are needed to make the
building more inviting, accessible, func-
tional and safe.
Downtown Synagogue members are
working hard on a fundraising campaign
in which private donors have put up
$60,000 that must be matched online by
midnight April 11. Funds will be used for
improvements to the synagogue's kitchen,
bathroom and exterior, plus additions
like a bike rack and fire escape. And a
mural will be painted on the back of the
building.
To donate, go to www.indiegogo.com/
projects/make-it-history.
