In a return to an in-person commemoration of Presidents Day, the rabbi of Temple Emanuel of North Jersey in Franklin Lakes, Joseph Prouser, will offer a program whose centerpiece is the Gettysburg Address, which Rabbi Prouser has translated into Hebrew and set to haftarah trope. This year, he will chant it at a breakfast program at the shul; local office holders, including the town’s new mayor, Charles J.X. Kahwaty, will read relevant texts. The February 20 program, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., is sponsored by shul members Linda Schwager, who is the mayor of Oakland, and past president Susan Yudin.
