When you send a Jewish Federation e-card or mail a Tribute card, you enhance the lives of the 100,000 strong Jewish Community of northern New Jersey and the two million Jews worldwide who receive Jewish Federation support each year. In addition you show friends and family in a beautiful way that you’re thinking of them.
