APPLE, RAYMOND (1935– ), Australian rabbi. Born in Melbourne, Australia, and educated there and in London, Apple was a rabbi in London before succeeding Israel *Porush at Sydney's historic Great Synagogue in 1972, retiring in 2004. Apple was one of the leading exponents in Australia of moderate Orthodoxy in the Anglo-Jewish tradition and served as senior rabbi to the Australian Defence Forces and as a member of Sydney's Beth Din. He was often in the public eye as an exponent of Judaism and for his notable interfaith activities, and he was president of the Jewish Historical Society of Australia.
