We offer meaningful gifts for teachers in Jewish schools. Order one as a special recognition, or enough for all of the teachers. Many of the gifts can be personalized with a dedication or have variety of color or design available so each gift is not identical. Contact Peggy regarding bulk pricing. We have gifts for very small budgets as well.
