Those who have zip codes that do not begin with "063" can expect to receive The Leader up to a week following mailing. Out of state zip codes can take additional time. The Jewish Leader is mailed as "third class" or "standard" and the post office has up to one week to deliver this class of mail.


Please note that when you forward your mail to your witness address, "third class" mail, i.e., The Leader will not be forwarded.
