FANWOOD, NJ -- Author and music historian Michael Rosenbloom will appear at the Fanwood Memorial Library (5 Forest Road) in Fanwood on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014, at 7:00 P.M.  He will attempt to solve the mystery of what possessed a staid Catholic High School in Scotch Plains to enter the rock concert business in the fall of 1967, literally the height of rock n’ roll’s most unforgettable era.
 
Through a unique, interactive PowerPoint presentation, Rosenbloom will also discuss the writing of When Stars Were in Reach and where The Who were in the arc of their eventual legendary career, when they decided to bring their raucous and destructive live act to a high school gymnasium in Fanwood’s backyard?
The presentation includes video and audio clips of The Who and is expected to last 45 minutes.  It will include audience participation and will be followed by a question and answer session.  At the end of his presentation, Michael will be available to sell and sign copies of his book.
For more information and to make a reservation for this free event please call the library at (908) 322-6400. This program is made possible with the generous support of the Friends of the Fanwood Memorial Library.

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in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.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