Newark, NJ (December 29, 2020) – Just days before Christmas, Children’s Hospital of New Jersey (CHoNJ) at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center received a special delivery of three pallets of toys from RWJBarnabas Health Board Member Kenneth A Rosen, Esq., partner at Lowenstein Sandler, to lift the spirits of the pediatric patients.
