On the first Friday of (almost) every month, JCS members and other interested parties come together to observe Shabbat (or Shabbes) with songs, candle lighting, wine, and challah. Following Shabbat, we share a meal and schmooze. Children are always welcome.

  • First Friday begins at 6:30pm and will be held in all of the lounges at the Jewish Community Center in Ann Arbor.
  • First Friday meals are from local Ann Arbor restaurants. Each month we will be featuring a different place from around town.
  • Dinner is provided at no charge to JCS Members. We ask non JCS members to pay $10/person or $25/family of 4. Nobody will be refused service because of inability to pay.

Register for our next First Friday:
