Rob Goldberger of Ventnor, Robert Golan of Margate, and Jason Soltys of Linwood march in solidarity with Israel.
MARGATE – The Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center held a march Tuesday, July 29 in solidarity with Israel during the current conflict in the Middle East.
More than 500 people of all ages gathered in the courtyard at the center on Jerome Avenue and marched through the city’s athletic facility and through the adjoining streets chanting and singing songs of Jewish culture and religion. They returned to the courtyard where children played on a bouncy ride and teens sang and danced to Israeli music. They waved Israeli and American flags throughout the program.

WILDWOOD — Wildwood officials could again weigh implementing beach fees in the city, and possibly put the issue on the ballot in November, Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said Tuesday.
But, he stressed that the plans are far from definite.
GALLOWAY– Jimmy DiNatale stands in the middle of the cavernous building of the old Lenox china manufacturing plant and can see he has a lot of work ahead of him.

On Monday night, Toms River center fielder John Giordano made a diving catch for the final out of the state championship game with the bases loaded with OC-UT players to end a 7-6 Toms River victory.
It was the seventh time in the last 20 years that a Toms River team has won the state championship. But, had that ball off the bat of Eric Greenling dropped in, OC-UT would almost surely have taken the lead.
