New Detroiters




Staff come from across the country
to call the Motor City home.

Vivian Henoch
Special to the Jewish News

uch has been "Friended,"
tagged and Tweeted about
them. They are the best
and brightest among us, representative
of the youthful spirit and energy mov-
ing to Detroit.
They've come from cities across
the country, from Los Angeles, San

Francisco, New York, Chicago —
drawn back to the city were they were
born and raised.
Others have come, much to their
surprise, to make Detroit their new
home. All have come to the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit in
search of opportunity and with the
purpose to help, to connect and to
engage Jewish Detroit in the task of
rebuilding a great American city.

Meet Ted Cohen
After many years on the West Coast,
Ted, his wife, Julie, and son Jonah
were lured back to the Motor City by
its unique mixture of friendly people,
unpredictable weather and accessible
Coney Island hot dogs.
As Federation's marketing director, he
loves devoting his energy to an organi-
zation whose business is helping people
in need and creating positive change
for the Detroit Jewish community. Ted
draws much of his inspiration from
the creative energy now flowing in and
around the city. Other pluses: He con-

siders the salt stick at New York Bagel
on Woodward to be the best in the
world and, unrelated, views the Detroit
Red Wings to be the single greatest
sports brand in history.
"I'm extremely proud to be a native
Detroiter; he says. "There's a spirit here
that doesn't exist anywhere else we've
lived. Part of that comes from the deep
history of the city and the community,
part is from the collective efforts to
solve our problems, and part is due to
the wealth of talented, engaged and
fundamentally good people that we
have here
