HAVE YOU PRAYED TODAY? Coming to daily morning and/or evening services may fit perfectly into your day. Your attendance IS important, even if you are only able to attend periodically. Fellow congregants who are reciting kaddish for a recently deceased loved one, or a yearly yahrzeit, rely on CSZ for their communal support. Going to minyan every day allows me to say kaddish for my mom, a promise I made to her. But because I go, it allows others to honor their loved ones as well. Phillip Arnold Please join us. Minyan times are listed online, in The Recorder, and in this Shabbat card on page 3.

Congregation Shaarey Zedek is a warm, welcoming, inclusive and egalitarian Conservative Jewish community. We provide to all generations innovative, stimulating and diverse spiritual, educational, leadership and social opportunities that nurture our love and commitment to Jewish life, our Synagogue, our country and the State of Israel. Our spiritual direction is led by committed, knowledgeable and caring clergy available to all. Together, all participate in celebrating our history, enriching our community and planning our future.


In 1861, at the beginning of the Civil War, seventeen followers of Traditional Judaism withdrew from the Beth El Society in Detroit to found the Shaarey Zedek Society. In 1877 the membership constructed the first building in Detroit to be erected specifically as a synagogue at Congress and St. Antoine. Over the years, Congregation Shaarey Zedek has been located in a number of beautiful and picturesque buildings. These include Winder between St. Antoine and Beaubien Streets, Willis St. E and Brush, and Chicago Boulevard and Lawton which is still standing. At the 100th annual meeting of the Congregation on April 12, 1961, more than 700 members approved the recommendation from the Board of Directors that a new synagogue be built on a forty acre site in Southfield Township. Since the 19th century, members of our congregation have proudly played leading roles in Michigan, the nation and throughout world Jewry. For more than 150 years, Congregation Shaarey Zedek has been a house of prayer, a house of learning, and a community gathering place, transmitting Conservative Jewish teaching, dor ldor , from generation to generation.


In case of emergency, there is an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) located in the alcove near the entrance to the Mens Restroom in the main foyer of the Synagogue. Oxygen is available, if needed, in the rear of the Sanctuary and in the Clergy Robing Room. Wheelchairs are available and are located in the coatroom. Large print prayer books are located in the rear of the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is equipped with a hearing loop which broadcasts sound without background noise or reverberation. If your hearing aid has a built-in wireless receiver called a T-coil or Telecoil, you may access the T-coil program by pushing a button on your hearing aid. Speak with your audiologist to find out if your hearing aid has, or can have, a T (no background noise pick-up) or an MT program (blended micro-phone & T-coil program) for improved hearing in our Sanctuary. If your hearing aid is not T-coil enabled, hand-held hearing devices are available and located in the rear of the Sanctuary. Lost items may be located in the coat room. If you dont find your lost item there, please contact the Synagogue office. Please note: the Synagogue is not responsible for personal belongings. Please notify an usher if you need assistance. If you have any questions about health & safety equipment in the CSZ building, please contact Keith Armbruster at 248.357.5544. VISITING THE SICK Due to privacy rules, hospitals cannot inform the Synagogue when Jewish patients are admitted. The only way we know that you, a relative, or friend is in the hospital is if we are notified by loved ones. Please contact Kelly at 248.357.5544 or when you know of one of our members who is in the hospital, so our clergy can be in touch with them. MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION For membership information, please contact Shelley Golsky at 248.357.5544 or
