Installation of Rabbi Dan Ross at Central Synagogue

Installation of Rabbi Dan Ross at Central Synagogue

In September, Central Synagogue installed Rabbi Dan Ross during a Friday evening Shabbat service. In addition to photographing the service, I was asked to photograph the action in the robing room beforehand for a behind-the-scenes glance of life at the synagogue.

Long Branch Firefighters 12th Annual Cigar Dinner at Rooney's Oceanfront Restaurant

Long Branch Firefighters 12th Annual Cigar Dinner

For the sixth time, I photographed the Long Branch Fire Department‘s Cigar Dinner. The dinner was held in a huge tent erected in the parking lot of Rooney’s Oceanfront Restaurant, and it featured a buffet dinner, hand-rolled cigar demonstration, raffles, auctions, and lots of cigar smoking. The evening ended with a fireworks display on the beach.
