Apple Picking for the Jewish New Year!

**This program is now FULL. To be added to our waitlist, please email [email protected]. Thank you.**

Join other Jewish young families for a field trip to Demarest Farms in Hillsdale, NJ. We’ll start off gathering at the farm, get to know each other with some fun activities then head out into the orchard to collect our apples.

And, because we love to involve a “mitzvah moment” in everything we’ll do, we’ll have one bag especially for collecting apples to donate to a local food pantry.

Tickets include admission to the farm, a large apple picking collection bag and a JCC goody bag with Jewish new year treats!

This event is best for kids ages 2-6 years old but older and younger siblings are welcome! This is a family-friendly, not drop off, event.
