CLINTON TWP., NJ - For more than 3,300 years, Jewish families near and far have gathered around the festive table on the eve of Passover, to commemorate the Exodus from Egypt and celebrate the “Seder” feast.

This is no ordinary meal. The Passover Seder incorporates fifteen multi-sensory steps which reach deep into the human psyche in every way possible and all at once: Rich melodies, dynamic visuals, prayers, stories, and even the senses of taste, smell, and touch are part of the tradition.

Each year on Passover, as nature experiences its own season of springtime renewal, the Jewish people participate in the Seder tradition and experience their own renewal and rebirth. Commemorated at the Seder table are the Exodus from Egypt and the birth of the Jewish nation more than three millennia ago – and at the same time many participants embark on a modern-day journey to spiritual freedom.

This unique Seder experience will be led by Rabbi Eli Kornfeld and will feature explanations and commentary based on mystical and traditional insights, humor, and song. A four-course holiday dinner will be served with hand-baked Matzah and choice of fine wines or grape juice.

The whole community is invited to Chabad of Hunterdon County’s 14th Annual Community Passover Seder, which will be held on Monday, April 10, at 7:30 p.m. at Beaver Brook Country Club here. (Use Annandale for GPS.)

There will be an interactive matzah bakery, where participants will create, bake, and will be able eat their very own matzah. Special discounted prices on wine will be offered and attendees can place their orders for Kosher Passover wine.

The Wine & Cheese Tasting and Matzah Bakery is also open to all and will be held on Sunday, April 2, at 5 p.m. at Unionville Vineyards outside of Ringoes. The cost is $20 pre-register and $25 at the door.

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

At a meeting of Flemington Borough Council earlier this year, Mayor Phil Greiner described Jack Cust as a man of “deep pockets and sterling character.” He seemed to be attempting to justify his basis for selecting a new redeveloper, after the first two selected by a committee he was part of, or led, failed at the project.

Candidates 'Weaponized' News Article

I was dismayed to see my 2014 news reportage inaccurately weaponized by council members Marc Hain and Brooke Warden in their campaign flier attacking Al Brewer. The headline “School security at issue: Flemington-Raritan board member accused of leaking secrets” is less than a half-truth, given the ensuing revelation.

Marc and Brook ignored my follow-up report in ...
