FLEMINGTON, NJ - Teens from in and around Hunterdon gathered at the Hunterdon Youth Lounge here on Monday to eat brunch and support their community.

The event was a Presidents Day brunch held by Chabad’s CTeen of Hunterdon.

Over a buffet of bagels and spreads, CTeen members gathered to meet and greet new CTeen directors Meir Lerman and Avraham Posner, who join Chabad from Brooklyn.

After ice-breaker games and competitive Kahoot trivia, the teens took time to tie dye American flag T-shirts, which will be donated to veterans.

In the wake of the many tragic events that have happened in schools both in Hunterdon and communities across America, the teens wanted to add a component to connect with people impacted by the events. They wrote personal letters to be mailed to the high school students and families in Parkland, Fla,, where each teen included a Mitzvah pledge in honor of those affected.

The day concluded with future CTeen event brainstorming led by Naomi Benenson, President of the CTeen chapter, where teens shared ideas about some of the events they would like to see in this year’s schedule.

The next event for CTeen of Hunterdon County will be the Purim Masquerade, on Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 6 p.m.. It will be part of Chabad of Hunterdon’s Community Purim Celebration, and will be held at the Stangl Factory here. Everyone is invited to particpate.

CTeen of Hunterdon County is a program by Chabad of Hunterdon for teens geared towards providing a platform wher teenagers can learn and experience true leadership - a group run by teens, for teens - and a forum to create community initiatives and be active in humanitarian work.

The group has social gatherings and fun educational workshops. CTeen has clubs at many local high schools and is actively seeking additional schools that may be interested in starting their own clubs.

Those wishing to RSVP or who are interested in learning more about CTeen and its affiliate programs can visit the website, send an e-mail or call 908-238- 9002 for more information.

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

To the editor:

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. Initially the project was to find someone to ...

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 ...
