EDISON, NJ -- On Sunday, Oct. 29, a group of 13 Upper School Students worked as a team to help two local refugee families that are supported by Interfaith RISE. Over the course of about an hour and a half, the students worked as a cohesive and efficient team to move a family out of an apartment, and then clean the apartment before the new refugee family arrived.

Students moved heavy furniture down a difficult stairwell, loaded a truck, and helped the family pack small items. As each room was emptied, they then transitioned over to cleaning duty. They vacuumed and swept floors, scrubbed kitchen and bathroom counters, and washed windows. It should be noted that all of this was done in the pouring rain.

The students who participated were: Mia Reyes of South Plainfield, Jordan Borst-Ortiz of Colonia, Dazlyn Erachshaw of Iselin, Kelly Lawrence of Scotch Plains, Victoria Howell of Piscataway, Stan DeLaurentiis of Plainfield, Judy Minnium of Scotch Plains, Camila Fang of Edison, Kenneth Shen of Edison, Sohum Thakker of Monroe, Neha Mandalapu of Warren, Silvia Xia of Iselin and Yash Pandey of Edison.

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in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

Dear Editor:

After Bruce Patterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County Freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting Freeholder, I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union ...
