More than 800 people celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Jewish News and honored the Davidson-Gerson-Wetsman-Saulson family as exemplars of multi-generational community leadership May 3 at Congregation Shaarey Zedek. The Grammy-winning Klezmatics brought the crowd to its feet with its rollicking music. Proceeds from the event benefited the independent nonprofit Detroit Jewish News Foundation.
