Healing, Memorial Service Planned for Cranford

To help the community get through the effects of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, the Cranford Clergy Council has planned a healing service for this week.

Cranford's religious leaders met this week to discuss plans for a special gathering to help the community continue the healing process in light of the shooting in Newtown, CT. Ten houses of worship are represented on the Cranford Clergy Council, which last came together for a Thanksgiving service this year.

Office administrator Susan Lemerman said, "The Healing and Memorial Service will take place for the entire community here at Temple Beth-El Mekor Chayim on Friday evening at 7:30 p.m." 

Details are still being worked on, but Patch will update you on Cranford's Healing and Memorial Service when more information becomes available.
