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