On Sunday, close to 100 people from across the area attended an Economic Crisis Fair at UJA Federation of Northern New Jersey in Paramus to find out where and how to find help. Representatives from 14 agencies, including the two Jewish Family Services, were available to counsel the attendees. Also, volunteer professionals offered information sessions on employment, credit counseling, credit card debt, health insurance, housing, foreclosure, and bankruptcy.

For information on where to get help, call Alice Blass at UJA-NNJ, (201) 820-3948, or e-mail aliceb@ujannj.org.
