On Wednesday, Nov. 22, members of Cteen – Chabad’s Jewish Teen Club - will package the meals. On Thanksgiving Day volunteers will deliver the meals to families in need, underprivileged families, and homebound seniors.

On Thanksgiving, Chabad will host all 50-plus residents of the Freedom House, a long term residential treatment / halfway house for men who are recovering from addiction. Chabad will provide the residents with a complete traditional Thanksgiving meal. Volunteers from the community will assist in bringing the spirit and joy of the holiday to the Freedom house residents.

“The holiday of Thanksgiving is all about gratitude and being thankful for what we have,” says Rabbi Eli Kornfeld, director of Chabad of Hunterdon. “We have to make sure that our feelings and thoughts of thanksgiving and gratefulness are backed up by actions. Our community must provide all residents a feeling of gratefulness and appreciation. While we are spending Thanksgiving with our families we must remember, not everyone in our community has family to celebrate with, we must step up and be their family, especially around the holiday season.”    

To volunteer or to donate for Chabad’s Thanksgiving Community Impact Project visit www.jewishhunterdon.com/volunteer, call 908-238-9002 or email rabbi@jewishhunterdon.com

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 ...
