Swiss + Schvitz: A Shavuot Experience

  • The Schvitz Health Club 8295 Oakland Avenue Detroit, MI, 48211 United States (map)

In partnership with Zach Berg of Mongers’ Provisions, The Schvitz Health Club, and Detroit City Moishe House, we are excited to present Swiss + Schvitz: A Shavuot Experience for young adults (ages 21-40).

The Jewish holiday of Shavuot celebrates the anniversary of receiving the Torah. To celebrate this special holiday, we’ll be enjoying copious amounts of dairy (a Jewish tradition dating back thousands of years). Seems like a great excuse to spend some quality time with fellow Detroiters in a historic Detroit bath house*, while sampling various cheeses and immersing yourself in this major Jewish holiday!

Due to the generosity of donors, tickets are available for $25, and include full access to The Schvitz (sauna, steamroom, and cold pool), as well as cheese tasting and Jewish learning!
