What We Do—

Youth & Family Programming

The Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley serves the community in many ways.


Through a partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, the PJ Library program helps to create strong Jewish ties by fostering children’s curiosity about their Jewish heritage and identity. Jewish families with children ages 6 months to 8 years, and the PJ Our Way is available for children ages 9 through 11 receive a high-quality Jewish children’s book sent to their home every month. Regardless of your level of observance or affiliation, the gift of stories and songs is sure to enrich your entire family’s Jewish journey.  

Youth Group

The Federation offers programming for our local Teens and Tweens that allow them to build peer relationships through fun and meaningful activities.
