One of the first projects is the assembling of information about Jewish retail businesses that existed over 50 years ago. The facts obtained so far are available for inspection at the Federation office at 301 Madison Avenue, Lakewood. We would greatly appreciate the community’s assistance in enlarging the list by adding or correcting information about companies, people, places, dates, and/or by contributing pictures or other memorabilia. If you can help, please call the office at 732.363.0530 or visit and see the start that has been made.
While the next area of concentration will be Jewish farmers, the Society is also seeking historical information and memorabilia about any aspect of Jewish life in the county including pictures, family trees or histories, event programs, the background of religious, fraternal, or charitable organizations, etc. – in short anything that adds to a picture of the life of our Jewish community. If you call the Federation, a committee member of the Society will contact you.
