For your many other needs, the Ann Arbor Jewish community has a rich variety of organizations and synagogues to support you on your Jewish journey.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Ann Arbor is one of the primary community agencies. Federation brings the entire community together to build meaningful connections with each other and with our partner community in Israel, Moshav Nahalah, and globally. Expressing the values of Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam, Federation seeks to raise funds to strengthen the many Jewish organizations we rely on everyday. Please explore their website for more information.
Many Jewish denominations are represented in Ann Arbor giving you a variety of worship options and opportunities to explore Jewish traditions. Some of them are housed at the JCC.
