Evelyn Schneck (nee Levinsky)

Evelyn was born in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and graduated from Franklin K. Lane High School. She was an ardent Zionist who was instrumental in the formation of the first Young Judea chapter in her neighborhood. She spent her summers training to make Aliyah at the Zionist Organization of America farm in Poughkeepsie, New York. She participated in packing “farm equipment” on the Brooklyn docks that was shipped to the Land of Israel in 1948.

Evelyn married her childhood sweetheart, Burton Schneck, in 1952, and once wed, they emigrated from Brooklyn to Long Island and ultimately to Livingston, New Jersey.

Over the next 50 years, she raised her three sons, saw her grandchildren born and grown to adulthood, and became a canasta legend throughout the state.

Farewell to an Institution

This week, Pastor Peter C. Picos of Northfield Baptist Church has announced the sad news that the congregation has decided to sell the church building, and the church will cease most operations once the building is sold.

This will be a huge loss, not just to its members, but to the entire community. Northfield Baptist Church has been closely entwined with Livingston’s history since the town’s earliest days, and its founding dates back to before the seven hamlets it served were incorporated into a single township in 1813.

Fire Damages East Northfield Road Home

Ageneralalarm was sounded at8:15 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, on a report of a house fire at 177 East Northfield Road. Both Livingston firefighters and police officers rushed to the scene. Emergency responders found flames venting out of a rear window of the home’s second floor.

The fire was quickly brought under control – within just 20 minutes, Fire Chief Chris Mullin reported. After the flames were extinguished, firefighters conducted an “overhaul” of the house to ventilate it and extinguish “hot spots.” All utilities in the house were then disconnected.

The homeowner, Daniel Pannucci, was outside on his front lawn when police and firefighters arrived. He confirmed to them that there were no other people or pets in the house.
