When we picked the name “Jewish Link” for our paper and media company, we did so because we were serious about connecting our unique Northern New Jersey Jewish communities.

Our kehillot are tied together in so many wonderful ways, be it through family connections, schools, shuls, federations and non-profits.

Not too long ago, there was “Jeb!,” Chris Christie “Telling it Like it Is” and even the distant memory of Bobby Jindal “For President.” On the other side of the aisle, there was Lincoln Chafee’s “Fresh Ideas for America,” and Jim Webb’s “Leadership You Can Trust.”

The Republicans started the campaign with a bevy of some 17 candidates to about six on the Democrat side.

Some of the people in the audience will have attended every single SINAI Schools annual banquet. Many will be first-timers. They will get to meet a group of honorees who have given their time, resources and, some, their trust...
