Sun Down, Climb Up

We're excited to end the week on a high note with rock climbing and Shabbat dinner!

If you're an experienced climber or excited to try for the first time, we hope you'll join us for a fun and casual evening! 

We'll be there at 6 p.m., but feel free to join us at any point. A new climber lesson** will take place soon after 6 p.m.

We'll have a room for socializing and snacking until...
7:45 p.m. when we'll gather for Shabbat blessings and dinner!

Climbing is on you, dinner is on us!

Email avery@meetyouatthewell.org if you're interested. 
**Let us know if you're a new climber so we have an idea of how many people we can expect for a lesson!

#BuildTheWell

We'd like to invite you to help us #BuildTheWell, and invest in the future of our community!

For just over two years, we have relied on the passions and leadership of hundreds of young adults in Metro Detroit to create innovative, intentional, and inclusive Jewish experiences to connect with each other and with our community. We do that socially, educationally and spiritually. Our passion, simply put, is bringing people together in meaningful ways.

We're asking you to invest through a crowdfunding page, which we'll launch on December 17th! Our goal is for 360 people to invest and help us #BuildTheWell.

Thank you so much for your investment and commitment to our community.

What's a Jew to Do?
Dec

1:00 PM13:00

What's a Jew to Do?

We're gathering with NextGen Detroit, The Downtown Synagogue, Detroit City Moishe House, Detroit Jews for Justice to discuss race and anti-Semitism, and the points at which they intersect.

We hear (and use) the words “oppression” and “privilege” a lot these days, but what do they really mean and how do they affect our country, our community and us as Jews? We’re delving in to the complicated issues of modern-day racism, anti-Semitism and exploring how these power dynamics are playing out in our own backyards. Yehudah Webster and members from the Detroit Jewish community will share their personal stories about being on “both sides of the fence” and together we will reflect on our own experiences and work to find ways to make our community a more inclusive, welcoming place for everyone.

It's a Crisis: Water You Gonna Do?

Do all communities have access to clean and affordable water? Who makes decisions about water in the city of Detroit? In Metro-Detroit? What can the Jewish community do about it? 

Join The Well and Detroit Jews for Justice to explore Detroit’s water crisis through a Jewish perspective. We’ll be discussing all of these questions and more alongside DJJ’s Jake Ehrlich, who will lead us through Jewish and secular text, as well as guest speakers and Detroit water activists!

This event is no cost to you due to the generosity of donors. 

We hope to see you there!

(This event is part of The Well's CSI: Coffee. Study. Interpret. series, and is made possible in part by funds granted by The Mandell and Madeleine Berman Foundation. The statements made and the views expressed, however, are solely the responsibility of The Well.)
