Shabbat and Holidays

Shabbat

In the past we have met formally on the second Saturday and fourth Friday each month for Shabbat services at our home base, the Jewish Community Center of Ann Arbor.  Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we hold most events via Zoom. Links are regularly sent out by email to members. Non-members can contact info@aarecon.org for links. We look forward to the time when we can all gather in person once again.

High Holidays

Our High Holidays services have always been open and ticketless and we welcome non-members to join us. In past years our High Holiday services were held at the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor. 2020 services will be conducted via Zoom.

Festivals and Other Holy Days

We have traditionally gathered as a community to celebrate the festivals and other Jewish holidays. Highlights of the year include our Purim bash and communal seders. Here’s our full calendar of events.

Sukkot 2015: we made lulavs from local plants and shook them to the east, north, south, west, and up and down.

All AARC services are open to the community and all are welcome! We strongly encourage non-members to attend services or other events in order to get the flavor of who we are. For more information about ritual and services at AARC contact info@aarecon.org.
