Statement from Senator Linda Greenstein
It is imperative that we all provide unwavering support for Israel during this time of tragedy. We awoke Saturday morning-Simchat Torah-to hear about the unspeakable events taking place in the Jewish state. Once again, Israel is under attack by terrorists—though this time is different. Civilians were ripped from their homes, gunned down at concerts, kidnapped… and worse.
We stand in solidarity with the Israeli public—many of whom find themselves in bomb shelters at this hour—as well as the victims and their families, but especially those who are hostages at this moment. The world cannot rest until EVERY single hostage is returned to their home safe and sound. We pray for peace, but we also pray for justice—those are not mutually exclusive. America must unequivocally stand with Israel as it responds to these heinous acts.
Israel’s national anthem—Hatikvah—speaks of hope. This hope will continue to guide us at all times, but especially during this dark hour. “Om Yisrael Chai.” God bless America and God bless the State of Israel.
Chuseok is one of the biggest Korean holidays - a time for families to gather and give thanks to their ancestors for an abundant autumn harvest. Happy Chuseok!

Last week, I had the honor of attending a ceremony remembering the life of one of Hamilton’s own, Kay Garruba. Kay was a fierce advocate for Hamilton, and dedicated her life to giving back to this community. It’s only fitting that we gathered to honor Kay’s memory at the tree on Knapp Avenue that she worked so hard to preserve.
For the Jewish community, it is the holiest day of the year. On this day, we fast, pray, and reflect on the year that has passed.
Wishing those observing an easy and meaningful fast. G’mar chatima tovah.

Visited Hamilton Township for a tour of the Homedell School with Mayor Jeff Martin, Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo, and Dan Benson for NJ.
As the home to Camp Fire NJ, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mercer County, and James R. Halsey Foundation of the Arts, I am incredibly pleased that federal American Rescue Plan funds have been secured to make various infrastructure improvements at the School. This investment will allow these three nonprofit organizations to continue their incredible work in the community.
