Dear Editor:

On Saturday, January 21, I participated in the Women's March on Washington. Along with thousands and thousands of women and a few good men (including my husband ) we experienced and embraced our democracy. It was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. I marched for my daughters and granddaughters and everyone else's as well.

Even though it was a "protest," it didn't feel that way. The crowds were exuberant and we all shared the feeling that we were participating in something positive for our country. We made a very strong statement that women's rights are human rights . It was a very large support group committed to making a difference. I have never felt so connected to so many. We met and talked with people from all over this country. We felt so empowered and believed that together we can make a difference. We shall have to see if that is true, but after Saturday, I feel hopeful.

Sinai or Sanctuary?

 

 

And in the beginning, G‑d was homeless, and so G‑d asked His people to set Him up with some digs. Where does it say that? Well, nowhere, actually. But it does say that G‑d instructed Moses to tell the people, “They shall make for Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”

Now the question is, was G‑d really homeless? ...

Colleen Mahr Has Paid Her Dues, Earned People’s Trust, and Left a Track Record of Success

February 20, 2018

Dear Editor:

As a 26-year-old Scotch Plains resident who cares more about the well-being of our town than about local politics, I am extremely disappointed that the Scotch Plains Democratic Committee leadership has decided to abandon Colleen Mahr in her run for Chair of the Union County Democratic Committee.

Mahr, who as Mayor of Fanwood for 15 years has worked closely with Scotch Plains ...
