Apple Orchard Gleaning - Family Friendly

We invite you (all ages) to a special apple glean at a family orchard in Shutesbury. Please RSVP to receive the exact location.
We'll harvest apples (perfect and not quite perfect). Our intention is to donate the pristine ones to organizations that help alleviate hunger in our area. We'll have suggested places to receive the food, but you are welcome to do research in your own towns and donate thru your local agencies.
Gleaners are welcome to take home some apples as well, for eating or preserving. Temple Israel owns 3 canners which can be loaned out for your home projects.


Glean with the Temple Israel crew at various locations at Atlas Farm in Deerfield. Harvest for a food distribution site which you have a connection to; or help us harvest for groups we already support. Take a weekly supply for yourself or a canning project. 8-9AM weekly on Sundays during the season. Contact Rabbi Andrea to go on the gleaners list for weekly announcements of meeting location and crops.

Vacation Week Arts Day

Come to Temple Israel the Thursday of Vacation week from 10-1:30 for a day of arts, craft, food, and music for ALL AGES! $10 requested per family to help us cover materials; no one turned away. We request that kids under 2 be accompanied by a caretaker during the crafts.
