With expenses continually rising, and business falling off for the past several years, the nonprofit organization made the difficult and painful decision to close its doors. Store manager Addy Frankel, and sales staffer Celine McKenna extend their regrets to regular patrons and donors, whom they said had become “like family.”

The NCJW organization says it will continue to serve the community, and looks forward to new projects in the future. To learn more about NCJW, see ncjwrockland.org.
