JNF newest logo

With more than a century of experience caring for the land and people of Israel, no one can match Jewish National Fund’s depth of understanding of the Jewish homeland and what it means to the Jewish people. Unique and exquisite customized JNF invitations let you plant a tree or make a contribution toward JNF’s water projects in Israel in honor of each guest. You can also customize traditional JNF tree and water certificates with your own wording to use as invitations, favors, table signs or for candle lighting ceremonies.

Writing thank you notes is hard. You have to buy cards and stamps, hand write all the messages, address the envelopes, insert the cards and seal them by licking every envelope. Now try getting a 13 year old to do this 100 times. Good Luck! With Thankster, all your child has to do is type, copy, paste, and we do all the rest. And the cards can use their actual handwriting, and will look absolutely authentic. What used to take days and weeks, now takes hours. Best of all, it’s fun! RESERVE YOUR THANK YOUS BY APRIL 15TH AND SAVE 30%. Create an account at and click on prepay in the top nav bar, then enter promo code mitzvahspecial.

Other Thankster features:
• If you have writer’s block, Thankster offers suggested thank you messages
• We can print on your existing cards, if you already have them
• Personalize the cover with names and photos or add QR codes to link to websites and videos.

Thankster’s cards are printed on textured, heavy weight stock. We can also print on your stationery, if you have it already. The handwriting we print for the messages looks absolutely real (can use your own), with characters that vary. Messages can be easily personalized for every recipient
