CLINTON, NJ - Live Jewish music and scrumptious food will be hitting Clinton this summer, with the second annual Hunterdon County Jewish Music Festival.

Headlining the event this year is the band Chillent. Formed in Pittsburgh in 2015, the band is known for ITS “soul stew” of original compositions, spicy covers, and funky interpretations of Jewish classics. They will be joined by Rogers Park, who feature a fresh and exuberant new style to contemporary Chassidic folk and popular music.

The festival will take place on Sunday, July 9 at 5: p.m. and will continue an annual music tradition for Hunterdon.

"I think this festival really showcases the extensive diversity in the worldwide styles of music," said Rabbi Eli Kornfeld, organizer of the festival. " he musical genres on display are outstandingly unique and original."

The event will feature a new BBQ truck this year, called Judd’s Memphis Kitchen, known for everything from brisket, hot dogs and hamburgers, to the highly-anticipated release of their Southern fried chicken. In addition to the music and food, the festival will serve up fun-filled activities for kids and families including face painting, arts & crafts, cultural activities and craft vendors.

Last year’s event had an even larger turnout than expected, with more than 200 people showing up to enjoy the BBQ, activities and music. Advance ticket purchases are recommended for this year’s event.

The Hunterdon County Summer Jewish Music Festival, hosted by Chabad of Hunterdo, will take place on the Hunterdon Art Museum Terrace in downtown Clinton, on the South Branch of the Raritan River. Admission is $10 for pre-purchased tickets and $15 at door. Food is sold separately.

Candidates 'Weaponized' News Article

To the editor:

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 ...
