Welcome to Detroit

Introduction to Metro Detroit/Farber

Listed among Time Magazine’s 50 Greatest Places of 2022, Detroit is a city with an extraordinary history and a bright future. With all of the amenities of a larger Jewish community and all of the charm, warmth and pace of a smaller community, Detroit’s Jewish suburbs are a hidden jewel among America’s Modern Orthodox Jewish communities.

At the center of the community lies Farber Hebrew Day School – Yeshivat Akiva. Long known for producing thoughtful, nice and grounded graduates, Farber – Akiva boasts a new building, a strong commitment to Torah, robust academics, a vibrant Zionist culture, and a great environment in which to grow up as a child.

In order to make it more affordable to make the transition to Detroit, Farber is offering a 75% discount on tuition for the first year, 25% for the second year. Please see here (Incentive Program) to see more details and eligibility criteria.
