Detroit Synagogues

star of david

Planning to do some synagogue shopping in Detroit? Whether you grew up as an avid synagogue goer or preferred to hang out in the hallways (or elsewhere) on Friday nights, there comes a time in many parents’ lives when they begin looking for a synagogue for their family.

You might be searching for a place to hold a baby naming ceremony, a preschool, a Hebrew school, or for somewhere to find your Shabbat or holiday groove. No matter the reason, finding the perfect fit for you and your family can be even harder than finding the perfect pair of jeans. But don’t despair! We have compiled a list of synagogues in the Detroit metropolitan area to help you get started on your search.

The fine print: The information on this page was provided by the respective synagogues and as such we can’t ensure the accuracy of any particular entry. Want more information? Give them a call, check out their website, and maybe even plan a visit.
