    Jewish History of Detroit Bicycle Tour Sunday, August 21,2011

    Jewish History of Detroit Bicycle Sunday, August 21,2011


    I've searched the announcement page carefully and don't see anything regarding a fee! ???

    I have not registered as of yet.

    A 15 mile ride through the streets of Detroit with 9 stops along the way

    All are invited regardless of faith or belief. However the event is limited to the first 150.

    Sunday, August 21

    8 a.m. Registration, first group of bikers departs by 8:30

    Picnic in the park to follow!
    Hop on! The Jewish Historical Society of Michigan, the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue and the Reconstructionist Synagogue of Detroit are leading the way through the streets of Detroit for a fun-filled morning of cycling, learning and bonding. Our tour travels from the beautiful, new Milliken State Park on the Detroit River, along the Riverwalk and through the Dequindre Cut, a landscaped bike path once the Grand Trunk Railroad line and through the city to see such sites as the Hank Greenberg statue at Comerica Park, numerous former synagogues and buildings built between 1902 and the 1920s such as the United Hebrew School building built in 1922 and the new Moishe House on Ferry Street and the Oakland Avenue Schvitz. Don’t miss this first-time event!

    Some of our tour stops include:

    The Hastings Street, Oakland Ave., Boston/Edison areas
    Lafayette Park neighborhood
    Early United Hebrew School building (1922)
    New Moishe House on Ferry St.
    Ford Motor Company's Piquette St. Plant (1903)
    Max Jacob's 19th century home on the campus of Wayne State University
    The Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue
    The Reconstructionist Congregation of Detroit

    ********As it turns out once you fill out the registration you will see a fee of $20 for the tour and $15 for picnic only. ***********
