A place for Jewish 21 to 40-somethings to meet, mingle, and make lasting memories. From fun outings to meaningful volunteer and fundraising opportunities, YJT offers a way to do Jewish on your own terms in Toledo. 

PJ Library® is completely FREE for families in the Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo region.

PJ Library® seeks to engage Jewish families with young children making bedtime story-time Jewish. Each participating child in our community will receive a high-quality Jewish children’s book or CD every month, from age six months through age eight. 

Each book and CD comes with resources to help families use the selection in their home. The book and music list has been selected by the foremost children’s book experts and includes a wide array of themes related to Jewish holidays, folktales and Jewish family life.

More about Gathered:


Gathering is the first step. We use molten glass to create blown, hot sculpted, or cast glass pieces. Blending classic and new techniques, we make an effort to design art objects or installations that harken tradition while still being all-together new.


Art glass has been a major part of Toledo's narrative since 1962, the beginning of the American Studio Glass Movement. We're proud that Gathered is right where it all began!


Embracing our reputation as The Glass City, Gathered lives the American Studio Glass Movement by creating handmade glass objects in a small artist-run studio.
