Theater: O Wholly Night and Other Jewish Solecisms
This comical and wistful one-woman show, commissioned and originally presented at the Jewish Museum, draws reminiscences from writer/performer Deb Margolin’s childhood, young adulthood, and recent years. Expounding on her lifelong fascination with waiting for the Messiah, Deb recalls various incidents over the years when she suspected the Messiah was present, while weaving other definitively Jewish experiences, characters, and Hebrew expressions into the monologue. For all its humor, the play offers some serious reflections on the cost of being different from the majority; those musings linger long after the smiles have ended.

$10.00 suggested donation.
Reservations recommended

 
Puffin donation helps Teaneck restart literacy program

"A $120,000 donation from the Puffin Foundation will allow the school district to reinstate a summer literacy and math program that was eliminated this year because of budget cuts, officials said.

'I think it might be one of the largest donations – without a grant attached to it – that we have had,' Schools Superintendent Barbara Pinsak said.

The district has already received $60,000, said Gladys Miller-Rosenstein, executive director of the township-based Puffin Foundation, and Perry Rosenstein, the foundation's president. The remaining $60,000 will be donated in 2012, in time for the program's start in July, Miller-Rosenstein said.

'We thought it was a really needed program, and they have proof that it had been successful,' she said. 'They have had this program before and it had been very helpful to the youngsters. … From listening to what they told us, we thought it was exactly what we would like to do for the school this year.'

The program, which will run for four weeks, will be open to students in Grades 1-8, said Vincent McHale, the district's assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. He said he expects about 300 students to participate."

This ceremony took place Wednesday November 9th at the Puffin Foundation.

We have sought to have our voice for peace heard. A world without war is a universal desire by untold millions of people. We have erected a “Peace Pole” on The Puffin Foundation Ltd. property located at 20 Puffin Way in Teaneck, NJ and in doing so have become a member of the Peace Pole family in the state of New Jersey.

The Peace Pole states in 8 languages “Let Peace prevail on Earth.” There are presently 264 peace sites throughout New Jersey. We are proud to be one of the new sites.

A ceremony was held on November 9, 2011 outside the Foundation offices. In attendance to dedicate the Peace Pole were State Senator Loretta Weinberg, Teaneck Town Council member Barbara Toffler, Judith Arnold Peace Pole official, Jules Orkin Puffin Foundation Peace Fellow, Supt. of schools Barbara Pinsack, Assistant Supt. of schools Vincent McHale, Walter Nygard of Veterans for Peace, executives of the Puffin Foundation Perry Rosenstein, President, Gladys Miller-Rosenstein Executive Director and Neal Rosenstein Vice President. The student band and ensemble group from Thomas Jefferson Middle School led by music teacher Vincent Pittman, provided entertainment. Anyone who wished to make a statement about world peace was invited to address the audience.

The Peace Pole ceremony will become an annual event.
