Torah Project Cards!

Send one today!

Need to celebrate a simcha?  Is there a family to whom you want to send condolences?

 

Torah Project cards acknowledging a donation or sponsorship of the Torah Project, such as a letter, name, or verse, are a wonderful, meaningful, and thoughtful way to send your message of love and caring.

They are perfect for simchas, such as a baby naming, graduations, honorary doctorates, b’nei mitzvah, and Brit Milah, and memorials for loved ones to let the family know you are with them.

 

When you make a donation to sponsor a tribute card in any part of the New Torah, we send the cards to people to let them know that a sponsorship has been made in their honor or to the family in memory of a loved one. If you have already made a donation and want to change it to a tribute card or add a card, let us know.  We can personalize messages and provide a translation of Hebrew passages if desired.

 

The cards are folded to 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 and mailed directly to the person honored or the family, as appropriate.  We have separate cards for adults and young children. 


Give the gift of writing a Torah.

It lasts a lifetime.

For more information or to request a tribute card, contact the synagogue office at 908-273-8130, X 110 or call Kala Paul (kala.paul45@gmail.com) or Jaimee Ehrenfried (ehrenfriedjs@msn.com)
