Community Programming is for everyone


The force behind many Jewish experiences in Toledo is Federation's Community Programming, which provides Jewish programs, events, and opportunities for Jews of all ages and stages. Community Programming provides the places to meet, mix, and mingle with all your Jewish friends in environments consistent with Jewish values.


PJ Library® is a wonderful, free program that will nourish Jewish life from the start. PJ Library seeks to engage Jewish families with young children. Each participating child will receive a high quality Jewish children’s book or CD every month, and playdates are offered for families on Federation's campus.


BBYO spans 39 regions and 15,000 members. BBYO, Inc. is a worldwide, trans-denominational, youth-led organization that provides opportunities for Jewish youth to develop their leadership potential and a positive Jewish identity. BBYO is for those in 9th – 12th grade. Contact for more information.

Next Jewish Generation is the nexus of Toledo’s community of Jews ages 21-40ish. Next Jewish Generation offers an exclusive way to get involved and connected through shabbat dinners, fun events, meaningful volunteer opportunities, educational programs, and leadership positions.


60 and Better programming through the Jewish Living Center offers weekly programs, speakers, trips, and so much more.


EMOJI offers children between the ages of seven and 16 a Jewish camping experience for FREE for first-time campers, or at a very reduced cost for children who are returning to a Jewish camp. The Jewish Experience Fund subsidizes Jewish summer camp, teen leadership programs such as BBYO, and teen Israel experiences.


Toledo Link to College provides care packages to college students who are away at school. The sisterhoods from the congregations have committee members that help run this program. Packages go out through UT and BGSU Hillel.
