Our faith traditions teach: You will be blessed in order to be a Blessing.
New Jersey has certainly been blessed. We live in a state that has some of the highest income and some of the best schools in the nation, as well as some of the best medical facilities in the world. With these Blessings comes a call by God to share our blessings with all the residents of New Jersey, especially those who don't have access to these many riches. This sharing happens through public and private spending. Today, we write to raise concern related to public funding.
