Young Jewish Families of Central Mass (YJF)

Join our growing community of young Jewish families in the Central MA area. We are families with young children (newborn to 8 years old) looking to meet other families with kids in and around Central Massachusetts.  We have a variety of events per year in conjunction with The PJ Library and with our partner organizations.  We are also looking for our members to initiate different events or playgroups throughout the year. See below for some ways to get involved or if you have any questions or have an event idea you’d like to share, please contact Mindy Hall, Outreach Director, at 508.756.1543 or email

Jewish children in the Central Mass community, ages 6 months-6 ½ years, are eligible to receive a monthly gift of free, age-appropriate Jewish-content books through PJ Library, a program designed to strengthen the identities of Jewish families and their relationship to the Jewish community.

Young Adult Division (YAD)

The Young Adult Division is a dynamic group of people - ages 22 to 45 - who are looking to connect and who are committed to building a stronger Jewish community in Central Mass, Israel and throughout the world through community involvement, education and fundraising.
