Shabbat Message for May 6

May 6, 2016 | Roz Blanck

On May 3, approximately 40 women bussed down to Detroit for Young Women’s Philanthropy’s Day in the D 2. The morning started with a private docent-led tour of the Detroit Public Library. Everyone was amazed by the art and architecture. The tour was facilitated by Barbara Cohn who has been a DPL docent for several years. Following the tour, we were joined by Hillel of Metro Detroit board member and Wayne State University student, Hannah Fine, who talked about what it’s like to live and learn in the city. Following Hannah, we bussed over to Traffic Jam for a lovely lunch. Immediate after lunch we shopped at the cool stores in Midtown including City Bird, Nest, Nora and Hugh who were kind enough to donate 10% of proceeds back to the Jewish Federation. Avalon Breads offered 10% all purchases, and many women sampled their fine fare. On the way back, we enjoyed healthy snacks donated by Stacy Goldberg and Savorfull. The beautiful weather only enhanced our experience. Special thanks to YWP chairs, Regina Colton and Sherrie Singer, and associate chairSuzanne Fellows for creating such a fun day downtown. Look for more programming from Young Women’s Philanthropy.

If you’re interested in getting involved with YWP, email Marianne Bloomberg at bloomberg@jfmd.org
