The Well is a pluralistic Jewish community building, education and spirituality outreach initiative geared to the needs of young adults and those who haven't connected with traditional institutions in Metro Detroit. Our belief is that Jewish community, ethics, values, and spirituality can and should be directly applicable to our lives, and should drive us to positively impact the world around us.
A significant number of millennials are choosing to call Metro Detroit
home given the renaissance taking place in the city. As is the trend
nationally, young adults and young families have many activities and
social networks competing for their time, and their affiliation with
traditional institutions such as synagogues has waned. The Well was thus
created as a relationship-based outreach and community building
initiative. Our goal is to provide mechanisms for connecting and
inspiring a passion for Jewish living in those not currently linked to
traditional Jewish institutions. The intent of The Well is to “raise the
tide” of Jewish connectivity to the benefit of all Jewish institutions
in Metro Detroit by finding ways to combat the demographic and
generational realities as uncovered in the recent Pew Report, exciting
unaffiliated and under-affiliated Jews to become actively involved in a
Jewish community that speaks to them.
