FANWOOD, NJ -- During the month of December, the Fanwood-Scotch Plains Rotary club will sell Luminaries at the Fanwood Department of Public Works Building on Manfra Way off North Avenue (across from the Fanwood Public Library). The sale dates are December 3, 10, 11, 17, 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and on Christmas Eve. 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The luminary kits cost 75 cents apiece in all quantities and include paper bags, candles and sand. Customers are encouraged to bring buckets, boxes or plastic bags to transport the sand.

Luminaries are traditionally used to illuminate the streets on Christmas Eve.  A candle is nestled in sand at the bottom of a paper bag and placed along sidewalks to create a beautiful walkway.  Some neighborhoods in the area get together and buy hundreds of kits for an amazing luminary display. 

All proceeds from the sale will be used to fund the various charitable and humanitarian projects that Rotary supports, both locally and overseas. The Rotary Club will also collect canned food for their annual Holiday Food Drive to support local food pantries.

Capitalist or Communist?

Karl Marx may have been the pioneer, but many other Jews were also involved in the struggle for communism, particularly in the early days of the Russian revolution. Personally, I don’t think that we have any apologies to make for this phenomenon. Having suffered unbearably under successive oppressive regimes, many of those political activists genuinely thought communism would be better ...
