Six special sections are published throughout the year focusing on the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah, Passover and Chanukah, along with the topics of senior living, homes and gardens and special events. 


The Federation also publishes a biennial magazine, Shalom Lehigh Valley, a guide to Jewish life in Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton.
