`Shalom' Provokes Street Fight In New Jersey.
Controversy erupted in June, when the township agreed to a request by Temple Beth Israel to change its address from 18 Cliffwood Street to 18 Shalom Way. No other building currently has an address on the small street, and temple members sought to honor the 50th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel with the name change.
Many residents opposed the change after the vote was announced and insisted the street be renamed Cliffwood Street.
On Oct. 6, the council agreed to a compromise where the street will carry a "dual designation" and both names will be accepted and recognized as being official street names.
