"Typically, we braid the challah," Debbie Friedner says. "We separate the strands and wind them like this. " The career counselor, 60, expertly twists the glistening dough on her Cherry Hill dining-room table as family members look on. "I'm going to let it rise a second time. Then I'll put it in the oven and let it bake," Friedner continues. "And when it's done, I'm going to [brush] it with a bit of egg wash and sprinkle poppy seeds and sesame seeds on top. " If all that sounds rather wonderful, imagine 100 or more Jewish women like Friedner baking challah together for the Sabbath ( Shabbos or Shabbat , in Yiddish and Hebrew, respectively)

Mrs. Lankford, 71, of Mount Laurel, who retired in the early 2000s as a teacher at Blackwood Elementary School in Gloucester Township, died Saturday, Sept.

The long: Suburban party venues offer rooms of moon bounces (and other giant, blown-up amusements), rooms to eat pizza and cake, cheerful staffers to keep things moving. The short: Our city needs one of these. The demo: 34 inches and up. The layout: Enter through the gift shop. Watch a safety movie. Spend a fast hour climbing into and jumping around a dozen big, red, yellow and purple inflated slides, climbs, nets, courses and rooms. Then move into a party room to chill out, eat.

Tom Coen was an assistant on Bo Wood's coaching staff at Cherry Hill East in 1990. The Cougars beat rival Eastern that season. It didn't seem like that big of a deal. "As it turned out, it was the start of a real drought," Coen said. Cherry Hill East beat Eastern again on Friday night, capturing the season opener for both West Jersey Football League American Division teams by a 28-21 score. It was a great way for the Cougars to start the season, especially since it ended a 25-year run of futility against the Vikings.

On her son's 22d birthday, Anne Jones brought "Happy Birthday" balloons and a card to a small grassy sidewalk patch at Kings Highway and Tampa Avenue in Cherry Hill, where a BP gas station is the backdrop. On the utility pole above the curb, she attached a blue poster that read, "Bobby My Precious Son," with Precious underlined three times. "No one could ever forget you!" Jones had written. "I see you everywhere and hear your laughter everywhere. " For nearly three years, at the corner where her son died in a motorcycle accident on Oct. 16, 2012, Jones has maintained a memorial - adding holiday decorations, replacing signs, and cleaning the spot as if it were her son's room at home.

There will be a couple of innovations this Rosh Hashanah at Torah Links of South Jersey, in Cherry Hill: One of the services will be shorter than usual, and there will be more prayers in English. Other than that, as it will be across the region and the world, familiar holiday traditions - prayers, songs, the blowing of shofars, and reflection in synagogues - will be observed as the Jewish high holidays begin with Rosh Hashanah at sundown Sunday. The sound of the shofar - a ram's horn - will announce the start of the holidays.

The Camden County Freeholders announced Thursday that they intend to introduce and vote on a resolution that would prohibit pet stores from selling animals obtained from so-called puppy and kitten mills.

Freeholder Jeff Nash, sponsor of the resolution, said he is confident it will pass when voted on next Thursday. The resolution is named Norman's Law after Nash's Labrador retriever mix, which he adopted from a shelter.

The private firm that scored a $34 million contract with the Philadelphia School District to staff substitute-teaching jobs - and promised that 75 percent of those positions would be filled on Day One - has fallen far short of its goals so far. On Tuesday, the first day of school, it had filled only 11 percent of the jobs. That left 477 city classrooms without teachers. On Wednesday and Thursday the rate and number of vacancies were roughly the same. "I think it's easy to say that we had hoped for a better result," said Owen Murphy, spokesman for the firm, Source4Teachers of Cherry Hill.
