FANWOOD, NJ -- The National Weather Service has predicted high temperatures and poor air quality in the Fanwood area through the weekend. To help those in need of heat relief, the Fanwood Police Department has designated The Chelsea Senior Living Center, 295 South Avenue, as a Cooling Station.
 
Anyone who needs transportation to the Cooling Station may call the Fanwood Police Department at (908) 322-5000 and officers will make arrangements for transportation.
 
 
When visiting a relief station, bring any medications and/or specialty items that you may need. Residents and visitors are urged to limit exposure outside, particularly during the hottest part of the day - roughly 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Those who must be outside should take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water.
 
High body temperatures and dehydration will make other medical conditions, such as heart and breathing problems, much worse. It is very important to stay cool and hydrated when the heat index reaches these dangerous levels.

 
"Please check on your elderly neighbors and advise them of the Cooling Station at the Chelsea, remind them to remain hydrated and to contact the Fanwood Police Department in the event of an emergency," Fanwood Police Chief Richard Trigo suggests.

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in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.
