36 Under 36: Jonathan H. Schwartz

Jonathan H. Schwartz, 34, of Plymouth is an attorney at Foster Swift Collins & Smith PC. Jonathan has taken a leadership role on the boards of numerous Jewish community organizations, such as NEXTGen Detroit, the Jewish Bar Association of Michigan, the ADL and the JCRC/AJC. Jonathan has been an innovator in a cause he cares deeply about, which is making the Jewish community a more welcoming place for interfaith couples and children of interfaith parents. In addition to working with The Well on interfaith programming, Jonathan helped establish NEXTGen Detroit’s interfaith affinities group and co-chaired the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit’s first-ever interfaith couples’ mission to Israel. Jonathan also helped found NEXTGen Pride, an affinity group for LGBTQ young professionals and their allies. Jonathan also co-founded the Jewish Bar Association of Michigan, the “go-to organization for the legal needs of the Jewish community,” which provides social, educational and charitable activities to hundreds of Jewish lawyers and judges across Michigan and the Metro Detroit Jewish community. His commitment to building a more inclusive Jewish community and building bridges also exemplifies the principle of hachnasat orchim (welcoming guests/people).
