NJ Shliach Joins 9/11 Memorial Ceremony

On Sunday September 11, 2005, South Brunswick Township dedicated a Remembrance Fountain in front of the Municipal Building to the memory of the three South Brunswick residents who perished in the World Trade Center on 9/11.  The event was attended by honored dignitaries, including: Mayor Frank Gambatese, the Township’s council, Congressman Rush Holt, Assemblywoman Linda Greenstein, Assemblyman Bill Baroni, Freeholder Director David Crabiel, and Freeholder Camille Fernicola. 
The Middlesex County Pipe and Drum and South Brunswick High School’s band played the National anthem. Commencing the ceremony, Rabbi Mendy Carlebach of Chabad House of South Brunswick, gave the invocation. The day continued with Community Unity Day at Woodlot Park at which Rabbi Carlebach gave another invocation to start the day’s festivities. In his invocation, Rabbi Carlebach used Biblical and Talmudic sources to explain how mankind must reflect in the poignancy of the moment and resolve to not only rebuild but to remain loyal to the spirit of all the 9/11 heroes. Mayor Frank Gambatese spoke of how a moment of tragedy must bring unity to the entire community.
