Apples & Honey

New families given a taste
of Ann Arbor hospitality.

SHOS HANNA COHEN
Special to the Jewish News

Ann Arbor
his was the first time 6-year-
old Michael Cohen had ever
tried to blow a shofar. While
he couldn't quite figure it out, he had
fun trying; and he planned to practice
when he got home.
Michael was given pointers by 9-
year-old Theo Chupp. "I've blown a
shofar before — look!" he said gleeful-
ly as he proceeded to demonstrate his
abilities.
Michael and Theo were two of 700
community members who participated
in Ann Arbor's 17th annual Apples &
Honey event Sept. 12 at the Jewish
Community Center of Washtenaw
County.
"The idea is to promote Jewish life,"
said Leslie Bash, JCC executive direc-
tor. "The community is growing, the
Center is doing more activities; so it's
just become more lively. ),
That growth was evident in Sunday's
attendance, which surpassed last year
by more than 40 percent.
This year, Apples & Honey featured
clowns, moonwalks, arts and crafts
projects and displays by various Jewish

T

communal groups. New this year were
pony rides and a petting zoo — and a
newcomers' booth.
Special invitations. to Apples &
Honey were sent to families that are
new members of the JCC or new to
the Ann Arbor area. Last year, the
community welcomed newcomers to a
brunch.
"This is just a different way to try
and reach out to new members in the
community," explained Julie Bagley,
JCC program coordinator.
Once at the fair, newcomers were
given a tote bag full of gifts and
resources intended to help them inte-
grate into the community. The gifts
included a $15 gift certificate to
Hiller's Markets, a jar of honey for a
sweet new year and a copy of the
Detroit Jewish News.
The 20 new families that attended
also were given a punch card with the
names of all the organizations at
Apples & Honey. Once their punch
card was completed as proof that they
visited every table, they were given a
free challah to accompany the honey
in their bag.
Hiller's Markets donated apples and
honey so that everyone at the event
could have a taste. Hebrew Day
