JEWEL Society

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the JEWEL Society for moms of PJ Library kids in Greater New Haven!

The JEWEL Society was formed in 2023 to encourage support for the activities of PJ Library and engage a new generation of future leaders. “JEWEL” is an acronym for “Jewish Women Emerging Leaders,” selected by the founders to embody the philanthropic endeavor of our valued members who are taking personal responsibility for the continuity of Jewish identity in our community.

With gifts to PJ Library, JEWEL Society members take the lead in ensuring a vibrant Jewish community in Greater New Haven for generations to come. A gift to PJ Library allows us to reach the families of more than 800 children from birth to 8 years old, enriching their lives with Jewish books, local family programming and outreach.

Moms of kids enrolled in PJ Library and PJ Our Way who contribute $118 to PJ Library locally to become a member of the JEWEL Society will receive a special bracelet and invitations to exclusive JEWEL Society social events. Members then receive a commemorative charm for each year of continued support.

"I love the idea of engaging a diverse group of women in philanthropic endeavors, and encouraging them to support and strengthen Jewish life through outreach events and community education programs, such as PJ Library. My background in Women’s Studies, having worked for both the Women’s Bureau and the Women’s Fund of Long Island (Formerly the Long Island Fund For Women & Girls), along with my active participation within the Jewish community highlight two of my passions. I am so excited to bring Jewel Society to the Jewish women of PJ Library in Greater New Haven and I cannot wait to see it come to life!" Stacy Hutton, JEWEL Society Chair
