Apple - You bring the honey, they'll bring the money

The Forest Foundation wants you to throw a party this year to celebrate Rosh Hashanah (Jewish new Year). They have buttloads of cash available for serious people ready to put on a really serious party. The Foundation is already working with communities in Ghana, the Abudaya, Hong Kong, Russia, Israel, and South America according to spokesperson Aaron Small. “It’s a project designed to recharge Jewish communities around the world.”

Sounds great, right? I mean in my neck of the woods Rosh Hashanah means going to the synagogue, introspection and lots and lots of food. What better way to segue into all that than to bump booties and dance at a kick ass party? Here’s the official Forest Foundation info:

Rosh Hashanah is just around the corner, and the foundation is working on its second annual project, Apples ‘n Honey. With the idea that every Jewish community should have the opportunity to come together in celebration of their Jewish identity and New Year, the Forest Foundation offers monetary grants to areas of the world where this would otherwise be impossible. Last year we sponsored parties all over Russia, South America, and California, drawing anywhere between 500 to 1400 people!!!

This year the Forest Foundation is looking again to work with and support any community in the world that strives to have their own Apples ‘n Honey celebration. We’re in the business of creating enjoyable settings where members of the community can join as one, comfortably making connections with other Jews in their neighborhood, with continued support on community projects throughout the year.

If your community would like to have a Forest Foundation sponsored Apples ‘n Honey celebration please contact levi@theforestfoundation.net to fill out the Apples ‘n Honey Application or if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you in celebrating our Jewish Identity and New Year as one.

These cats are serious. Call them today! Throw an awesome party tomorrow. Oh… send us pics too!

  • It sounds very stupid to me. Rosh Hashana, you have a beautiful sacred synagogue prayers and melodies. I suppose its all for kiruv so its just peachy, hehe.

  • “to areas of the world where this would otherwise be impossible.” California?

    Who knew it was impossible to throw a party in California?

  • thanks for fixin the link rabbi yo…i’ll call u tomorrow. i miss you…

    grace, california may be considered by some pretty remote! though besides tev-aviv, the san fernando valley has got the largest number of Yisraelim.

    ppl, contact the foundation and let’s get retarded it started!

  • From the foundation’s website, “. . . our second annual Apples ‘n Honey program. With the idea that every Jewish community should have the opportunity to come together in celebration of their Jewish identity and New Year no matter where they are, the Forest Foundation offers monetary grants to areas of the world where this would otherwise be impossible. . . . seek out and support the development of Jewish communities both large and small in every corner of the world where diminished resources and limited access to Jewish life are decreasing identity. . .”

    I don’t think this means California, New York or Jerusalem.

  • skylar, apples ‘n honey is to my understanding, one of many projects in our remote jewish communities program designed to strengthen global jewry. in other words, this is a special celebration that simply for clarity, falls under the remote jewish communities program. after this, we will be focusing more on outreach to underprivileged areas. where are you based?
