We sell these for $2 each or 12 for $21 if you want to have a selection on hand. However, if you just need an occasional card, let us know and we will mail it for you and pay the postage. Such a deal! We also have several different certificates ranging in price from $5, $18, to $100. These are ready to view at all in-person events. Contact Susan Fox to order or to ask questions.

Our Rosh Hashanah Honey Fundraiser will begin soon. This is one of our major fundraisers and is very popular with those to whom we send the honey. They look forward to receiving it annually.
