My Green Rosh Hashanah

At my temple last night the rabbi's sermon started off beautifully, examining Rosh Hashanah as the birthday of the world.  But it quickly turned into a "go green" lecture: global warming, wasteful consumption, the need to conserve energy, etc. etc.  As the sermon went on and on, I turned to my daughter and suggested that, in order to actually conserve some energy, we find the light switches for the temple and turn them off.  Her response:  "And the mike too."
