Genesis History

Genesis of Ann Arbor is a partnership between Temple Beth Emeth, a Reform Jewish congregation, and St. Clare's of Assisi Episcopal Church.

Beginning in 1974, the two congregations, through the nonprofit corporation Genesis of Ann Arbor, have jointly owned and managed the property at 2309 Packard Street in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Temple Beth Emeth and St. Clare’s have recognized that although the world has always been torn by distrust and suspicion, waste, prejudice, and violence, we must learn to trust, conserve, believe, give and love if we are to survive as the children of God.​

This report was broadcast nationally in 1975 by NBC News.
