Their mission as quoted from their website:
Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey adds value by providing the leadership necessary to create a strong, collaborative, caring and vibrant Jewish community in northern New Jersey, Israel and abroad.
They have programs to help seniors, the youth, families, Holocaust survivors, those with special needs, advocacy, Synagogue resources and so much more. They had a silent auction, food, an awards ceremony and the guest speaker was Leigh Anne Tuohy. You may have remembered a film called The Blind Side? It was based on her family’s story of adopting an African American boy and how he rose up to play football with a scholarship to University of Mississippi and win the Superbowl with the Baltimore Ravens.
I love this, and no she wasn’t mad, she was laughing afterwards LOL!
Sometimes someone else gets in the picture LOL!
Here is the wonderful and inspiring Leigh Anne Tuohy.
I had a lot of fun, I mean, when do I not? I get to meet great people, make new friends and learn about causes that I haven’t heard of at times. Everyone was so gracious and lovely. I had my laptop with me, so after it ended, they needed some shots for their social media promotions. Then since I was literally up in my husband’s old neighborhood, I went to White Castle for a late evening snack and brought him home some too.
Thanks everyone for hiring me to be your photographer!
