Open House for Young Singers, Princeton United Methodist Church

Wednesday September 18, 2019
4:30 PM

The beauty of Christian music comes alive when children and youth feel what the lyrics say, according to Tom Shelton, PrincetonUMC’s director of children’s and youth choirs and a sacred music professor at Westminster Choir College. Young choristers learn good singing techniques and music theory; they participate in worship monthly, present a musical, and sing at special services throughout the year.

Open houses for parents and children will be Wednesday, September 18 at 4:30 p.m. (kindergarten and first grade) and the same day at 5:30 p.m. for second through fifth grade. For information email Tom@PrincetonUMC, or call 609-924-2613.

September Meeting, Mercer County Jewish Genealogy Society at Beth El Synagogue

Wednesday September 18, 2019
7:30 PM

On Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 7:30 pm, the Beth El Synagogue of East Windsor, Mercer County Jewish Genealogy Society presents "The Jewish Marriage Contract and What it Really Says". Vital records (birth, marriage, death) have always been a valuable source of family information and sought after by genealogists. The Jewish Marriage Contract (Ketubah) is no exception. The information in the Jewish record actually complements the information in the civil record: the civil record typically identifies the bride and groom by giving their family names whereas the Jewish record gives their fathers' names instead. There is a basic difference between the civil and religious marriage records in that one focuses on the union and the other on the termination of the union.

This meeting discussion addresses what is contained in the Jewish marriage contract, explains what it really means and provides information that can be useful to family historians. Beth El Synagogue is located at 50 Maple Stream Road, East Windsor, NJ, 08520; 609-443-4454; www.bethel.net.
