                                     If you asked me what my favorite type of apple is, I would be hard pressed to make a choice. Because
                                     the varieties are endless, I seem to find a new favorite every season. One year, I was heavy into golden
                                     delicious, displacing my beloved jonagolds. Then I rediscovered the beloved red delicious of my youth;
                                     the first apple I probably ever tasted, and probably on Rosh Hashanah, dipped in sweet golden honey.
                                     To this day, my mother always buys red delicious apples for the new year. The crunch of the skin and
                                     the cold, sugary flesh is my body’s way of knowing that it is the first of Tishrei, the new moon, and the
                                     beginning of a new year.

Rabbi Jennifer Kaluzny
                                When Mother Nature decided to bring summer in March and return to winter’s frost shortly thereafter,
I was as confused as the next person, but I was also saddened. I am not a horticulturalist, but even I know that extreme heat way too
early, followed by a frost is not good for crops. As it turns out, my instincts were right, and Michigan’s apple harvest is suffering the
consequences. In a Detroit Free Press article from June 29th, it was reported that Michigan’s apple crop will be about 90% smaller
than usual this year. Most years, 20-23 million bushels of apples are harvested. This year, farmers are hoping for 3 million. ONLY 3
MILLION! What are the rest of you going to eat?????

I was immediately saddened to think that so many farmers would suffer crop loss and the financial ruin that comes with it. I am also
saddened to think that this year, our beloved tradition of apples and honey on Rosh Hashanah might be in danger. Surely, if we can
import cherries from Poland for our famous cherry festival, we can get apples from somewhere else too, right? But I like supporting
Michigan businesses, and an apple from Washington or even further, just isn’t the same. I like mine straight from the tree, and if I am
not lucky enough to be that close to the source, I like my apples local. So what are we Jews to do this new year?

I could say that it’s time everyone heads to Eastern Market, or whichever farmer’s market you live near, and start supporting the farmers
and trying new fruit that could stand in for the apples. I could say that we could skip the apples and go straight to the honey- that
wouldn’t be too bad, right? I might suggest that we all buy whatever apples we can, looking out for local varieties whenever possible. I
think those are all good suggestions. Let’s do all of them, and at the same time, remember why we eat apples and honey in the first place.

The honey is easy. It is sweet, and we hope for a sweet new year. It reminds us of Israel, the land flowing with milk and honey. There are
many explanations for the apples. One explanation is that the Jewish people are themselves the apples in Solomon’s Song of Songs. “As
the apple is rare and unique among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved -- Israel -- amongst the maidens (nations) of the world.”(2:3)

On Rosh Hashanah, we are reminded of the intimate and loving relationship we each share with God. It is as unique to each one of us
as every apple on the tree. And like the apples on the trees, some have blemishes, many are imperfect, and some fall off the branch. But
that is how it is supposed to be. No relationship is without blemish, without some sort of imperfection making it special, sometimes
disappointing, and other times, gratifying and sweet. God knows this, and God hopes that we know this too. God is just waiting for
us on Rosh Hashanah to go through the orchard of our relationship, travel down the rows of the year that has just passed, and pick up
the apples that have fallen to the ground. God hopes that we examine the blemishes and see the beauty in them, and how they helped
us learn a lesson and grow as human beings. God hopes that we explore the orchard, and the trees, and that we emerge from that
experience stronger, happier, and ready for a new year of challenges, hopes, and adventures.

So, while we might have apples, local or otherwise, on our tables, we have to remember that to God, we are the apples, and we are never
out of season or ruined by bad weather. God is our farmer and we are God’s crop, and though some of us may feel battered by the wind
and the rain, we are always collected carefully and lovingly in God’s bushel. Rosh Hashanah is our time to remember that as we pray
on earth, God is harvesting in the heavens.

                                        “Mike, Gersh Cooper calling. How would you like to help Temple Israel?”

                                        With those few words, I agreed to join Temple’s Executive Board as its Secretary. No doubt Temple asked me
                                        because they heard about my excellent typing skills. I also make a great cup of coffee.

                                        But I quickly learned Temple does not need typists or baristas. They just need people with enthusiasm and with
                                        a commitment, as Jews, to making this world a better place for all (Tikkum Olam).

        Michael Curhan,                 For me, that is all I needed to hear. I look forward to helping Temple fulfill its mission of making a difference.
                                  If you want to make a difference, too, I hope you will join us at our now famous (infamous?) outdoor “Shabbat
                                  Under the Stars” (patent pending!). Admittedly, the heat drove us indoors in July. Maybe we need a generous
   donor to underwrite a retractable roof so we can handle all weather conditions? (No doubt our wonderful President Marc Whitefield already
   has something in the works!)

   Rabbi Lader and her husband Dan already are making a difference. Within days after joining Temple, they left for Israel with over 50 of our
   Temple youth. What a great opportunity this trip was for our teens to build lifelong connections with their rabbis.

   I look forward to welcoming our newest Temple members. Please introduce yourself to me. Do not rely on the picture above to recognize
   me. I am much better looking in person. At least that’s what Rabbis Loss and Yedwab tell me. (Did I mention how brilliant our clergy are?!)

   Todah Rabah, Gersh. Thanks for calling me. I hope I can help Temple half as much as you did (and continue to do).

used at home for family storytime adventures! The evening concluded with a
beautiful Havdallah service led by Cantor Smolash and Rabbi Kaluzny, along
with scrumptious s’mores! A special thank you to our co-chairs – Hallie Jaffe
and Julie Potocsky for all of their help and hard work.

 Recycling transforms the harmful elements from landfills into new products ranging from
 wheel weights to chrome vehicle bumpers.
 We have collection bins in the Tyner entrance. We will collect most types of batteries
 (alkaline, cell phone, laptop, etc…) NO CAR BATTERIES, PLEASE.

The Debt This original 2007 release from Israel, is the story of three Mossad agents in the
1960’s who capture the “Surgeon of Birkenau”, a fictitious Nazi war criminal. However before
they are able to transport the prisoner out of Berlin into Israel, he manages to escape. They
decide to cover up what has happened, simply saying that he was killed in a struggle. Thirty
years after their triumphant return to Israel as heroes, a rumor threatens to unravel the web
of lies the three agents have been weaving.
The Human Resource Manager The Human Resources Manager of Jerusalem’s largest
bakery is in trouble. He is separated from his wife, distanced from his daughter, and stuck in
a job he hates. When one of his employees, a foreign worker, is killed in a suicide bombing,
the bakery is accused of indifference, and the HR Manager is sent to the victim’s hometown
in Romania to make amends. Far from home, on a mission to honor a woman he didn’t even
know but has somehow grown to admire, the HR Manager fights to regain his company’s
reputation - and possibly his own humanity.

Being a Temple grammy or grandpa is the best! We grandparents (or special grandfriends) enjoy being
involved with our children and grandchildren. Sometimes however we just need a “little invitation”
to participate in school activities.
Please invite any and all grandparents or special friends (if you do not have a local grandparent) to
celebrate a wonderful Shabbat with us on October 5th. “Grandpeople” may arrive anytime before
10:30 AM and meet their “little one” in their classroom. From there, everyone will head to the
Sanctuary together.
We are looking forward to a very special Sukkot together where every child has a guest.
If you have any concerns, please call our office at 248-661-5750 or you may respond to your child’s
