C ongregation 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 Street 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 the city of Southfield.

Since the 19th century, members of our congregation have proudly played leading
roles in Michigan, the nation and throughout the 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 l’dor, from generation to generation.
