Come My Beloved is a new play by Emma Weinstein about race, intimacy, and Detroit, Michigan. Based on true stories, the play chronicles one Friday night in the lives of three Black and Jewish couples: communists Solomon and Sophie (1930’s); Noah, a PhD student, and Susan, a classical violinist passing as white (1970’s); and Maya and Julia, recently relocated Brooklynites (present day). Through glimpses into lives of these three couples, Come My Beloved explores the intersection of race, faith, and identity during the downfall and resurgence of one of America’s most important cities.

Join us for a staged reading of the play, followed by a community conversation about the shared history and future of the Black and Jewish communities in Detroit. The performance will be followed by a community discussion led by Pastor Aramis Hinds and Rabbi Ariana Silverman. This event is hosted by the Bethel Community Transformation Center, the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue and Hazon Detroit.
