Downtown Synagogue joins neighborhood groups for food justice

Detroit's Jewish community is active this week during Hanukkah, which runs through Sunday, Dec. 16.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the Eden Gardens Block Club -- partnering with the Downtown Synagogue in Detroit -- hopes to grow produce for its East Side neighborhood.

At the Detroit Youth Food Brigade, a member of the synagogue helps young students learn how to sell and distribute healthy food. And at Replanting Roots, another member of the Detroit synagogue is working to help ex-prisoners develop an urban farm.

The Downtown Synagogue is the last free-standing active synagogue in Detroit, where it hopes to become an anchor for a new generation of Jewish people looking to live in the city.

All sounds good. Read on here.
