SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – Spring is the usual time for Girl Scout cookies to make an appearance.  While selling Girl Scout cookies this year, fifth-grade Junior Girl Scout Troop 40694 from Park Middle School in Scotch Plains also took orders for boxes to be donated to the residents of Union Beach, a community recovering from Superstorm Sandy.

The 12 girls in Troup 40694 collected donations in order to buy 117 boxes of cookies and travelled to Union Beach Municipal Building to give the cookies to residents coming in for support and supplies. The troop worked with Union Beach officials to spread the word to Union Beach residents that free Girl Scout cookies were available.

“Last year we donated cookies to an orphanage in Haiti. This year the girls realized people needed help closer to home,” says Troop Cookie Manager Andrea Cerini.

Fanwood-Scotch Plains is one of 138 communities in Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey, which serves over 25,000 girls and 11,000 adult members in 7 counties across central New Jersey.

Why We Keep Kosher

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.
