Dear Neighbors: 
 
I hope that each of you enjoyed your Thanksgiving and that the holiday gave you an opportunity to unplug and unwind. As your friend and neighbor, I would encourage each of you to take another day to relax and to spend this day enjoying your families while avoiding the frenzy of the doorbuster deals.
 
 
Instead, join me on Small Business Saturday (Nov. 29) when I support our incredible local businesses. Take a minute to see the many treasures at stores like The Last Firefly, Apple Blossom Flower and Candy Shop, and Uptown Vintage, just to name a few. 
 
I will be shopping tomorrow with my friend, Councilwoman-Elect Rose Checchio. We are meeting first at Apple Blossom at 11:00 a.m. From there, we will be visiting several of our unique and surprising shops. We would absolutely love to have you join us for the day. 

 
As you consider the possibility of mall traffic and exhausting lines, please Rose and I are asking you to remember that our unique small businesses are just one more thing that make the communities of Scotch Plains and Fanwood so amazing. 
 
Very truly yours,
 
Councilwoman Colleen Gialanella

The Missing Moses

A seemingly dubious distinction belongs to this week’s Parshah, Tetzaveh (Exodus 27:20–30:10). It is the only reading in the Torah — from the first Parshah of the book of Exodus (in which he is born) until the end of the book of Numbers — where the name of Moses is not mentioned. Tetzaveh’s opening words are V’atah ...
