Motown Mensches at Berman Theater


In the early days of the phenomenon that became Motown, Barry Gordy enlisted the talents of Jewish producers, agents, writers and singers.  Jan Durecki, archivist with the Leo M. Franklin Archives at Temple Beth El, will discuss her research on Motown’s Jewish connections.  Come and see this 2012 Michigan Jewish History Journal article come to life…and stick around for A MUSICAL MOTOWN AFTERGLOW!



Special RSVP tickets just $8 and must be purchased by calling[masked] or online at: http://theberman.org/motownmenches/

(Best to call for tickets and request to be seated with other Jewish Mingle members.)

Should be a great evening.

      no singing it was a fifty minute lecture. I was interesting. I was new and did not know who was in the meet up. So I was unable to talk to anyone

    Very enlightening presentation with warm afterglow. Would have been incredible if all 250 of us were from Jewish Mingles. Thanks Motown Menches for inviting us.
