Ferry at Beaubien
Third Baptist Church
As Detroit grew rapidly in the early 20th
Century the Detroit's Jewish community gradually moved north
yet remained largely on the eastside [east of Woodward Ave.
in Detroit] where a second shtetlhood locus in the areas to
the east of Detroit's New Center with a rough center of East
Grand Blvd. and Hastings Street. [Now Interstate 75]
Several sites remain from that era with B'nai
Israel being the furthest south remaining synagogue. The
second iteration of the Shaarey Zedek was nearby as was the
next site the Tushiyah United Hebrew Schools.
