MIDDLETOWN – Remembering the past is often the
only way to ensure a better present and future.
Born in October 1942 and liberated in April of 1945, Joseph Polak wasn’t

A capacity crowd of local residents, educators and community leaders came together in the Student Life Center in Lincroft on March 22 for a unique panel discussion hosted by the Chhange. The program, titled “Muslim Women in Our Community,” featured six female professionals and social advocates from the central New Jersey region.
