Apples & Honey & Lots, Lots More!

September 17 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Apples & Honey & Lots, Lots, More! is our annual community event celebrating the fall Jewish holidays: Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah. This event is FREE and open to the entire community. Supported by a generous gift from community supporters who wish to remain anonymous, this celebration is a gift to you and your family.

Apples & Honey & Lots, Lots, More! is one of the largest Jewish gatherings in Ann Arbor with hundreds of participants each year.  What started in 1988 as a small event has since grown to a much-anticipated community wide celebration. Local Jewish organizations join together to educate the community about their missions and provide opportunities to participate in celebratory activities and holiday themed projects. In addition to many Jewish holiday themed hands-on activities and projects, there will be a variety of carnival style games, inflatables, snacks, and of course apples & honey to taste.

While this September’s event details are still being organized, you can count on there being food for sale, hands-on activities, holiday themed make-and-take crafts, and the J’s very popular Early Childhood Center’s kosher baked goods sale! Participating organizations may offer membership opportunities at this event and some will offer Judaica and other items for purchase.

We encourage you to save the date and we can’t wait to see you!

*Apples & Honey & Lots, Lots, More! is a rain or shine event.


None!  This event is free thanks to community support!*

*Some food may be provided, and some will be available for purchase through vendors.
