FANWOOD, NJ – The original Mara and the Mayor of Fanwood will be on hand tomorrow to help franchisee Marci Semel to officially open Mara’s Café & Bakery, a casual, family-friendly business that unofficially opened their doors across the street from the Fanwood train station at 250 South Avenue two months ago.  Mara’s will be open from 7 am to 11 pm, with the ribbon cutting ceremony being held at 11 am.

Families are invited to come and participate in all the activities, from free samples of coffee and gelato to face painting and balloon animals.

“We will be doing many different raffles and contests,” said Semel.  The most anticipated contest is the one where patrons are asked to put forward ideas for new menu items.

Mara’s Café & Bakery has been recognized regionally and in New Jersey as the Best Coffeehouse, and has won numerous awards for its cheesecake, gelato, cupcakes, cannoli, sandwiches and more.

“We are pleased to have Marci on our team,” said Ian Magley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mara’s Franchise Systems, LLC. “Her enthusiasm and focus on providing a great customer experience makes her a perfect franchisee to help us expand our franchise network and to Make Every Day Delicious in Fanwood, NJ.”

“I am thrilled to become a part of the Mara’s family,” said Semel.  “To me, the Mara’s brand represents great award-winning products served in a comfortable environment.  I have enjoyed being a customer of Mara’s Café & Bakery in Denville, and am excited to bring Mara’s to my home community.”

Mara’s was established in 1984 when Mara and Glenn Magley created a line of desserts and coffee products for the wholesale market.  In 2004, the first Mara’s Café & Bakery was opened in Denville, NJ and the product lines expanded to include soups, sandwiches, salads, quiches and handcrafted gelato. The menu has grown to include seasonal specials and freshly roasted coffee beans. All meals are made fresh to order for dine-in, pick-up and catering.

“For over a quarter century, our motto has been to offer a customer experience we would expect for ourselves. We look forward to expanding our customer base in the Fanwood market,” said Mara Magley, Co-Founder and Vice President, Franchisee Support.

Sinai or Sanctuary?

 

 

And in the beginning, G‑d was homeless, and so G‑d asked His people to set Him up with some digs. Where does it say that? Well, nowhere, actually. But it does say that G‑d instructed Moses to tell the people, “They shall make for Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”

Now the question is, was G‑d really homeless? ...
