Some of our tour highlights will include:
Congregation Beth Tephilath Moses, founded in 1909 in a Mount Clemens home. This Conservative Synagogue is the only synagogue in Macomb county. We will enjoy a tour and hear the history of this congregation as well as enjoy a light Kosher lunch. We will also have an opportunity to purchase BTM’s heritage cookbook, “Mount Clemens Kosher.”
The Crocker House Museum & Gardens, this Italianate home built in 1869 was the residence of George and Katherine (Clemens) Crocker. The Crocker offers visitors a late Victorian home-life experience reminiscent of the world renowned Mineral Bath Era. We will learn about the baths and the influences of the Jewish population on the Mount Clemens Community.
A visit to the Beth Tephilath Moses Cemetery. The first thing every Jewish community needs is a cemetery and Mount Clemens was no exception.
