The following is from Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel (TSTI):
Approximately 30 adults and children from Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel celebrated the start of the Jewish New Year by spending the day with an enduring symbol of the holiday – apples. Members of the South Orange Reform synagogue enjoyed a day picking apples at Alstede Farms in Chester, N.J. on the second day of Rosh Hashanah. Extra apples were collected for donation to the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges, which TSTI actively supports throughout the year. Michelle Tillis Lederman from South Orange was among the members who enjoyed the outing.
