EZ Key 2014
The High Holidays represent a special time to connect with the Jewish community.
Through the EZ Key program, synagogues in the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey catchment area are saying "Welcome" to new members of the community (who have lived in Bergen County/ Passaic County/ Hudson County for two years or less) by offering High Holiday tickets.
Don't miss hearing the Shofar this year. Tickets are available for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, including Kol Nidre and Yizkor.

GRJC's Annual Blood Drive
This year, our blood drive will be run by the American Red Cross and will be held inside the social hall. As usual, this drive will be just a part of the activities associated with the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey's Mitzvah Day. There will be lots of activities for volunteers of all ages throughout northern New Jersey.
If you would like to be a donor at our blood drive, we ask that you NOT to donate blood after September 6. That way, you will be able to donate on November 2.
The criteria for blood donation have changed! If you were not eligible to give blood before, you should come and check out the new guidelines. You may be able to donate this time!
Have questions? Contact: Fran Skrobe at email@example.com.
