Thanks to your generosity and that of all of our donors and sponsors, we raised just under $500,000 gross. Donations made during our Mitzvah Moment were matched TWICE thanks to the generosity of Jay and Diane Zidell and Steve "Rosy" Rosenberg and Ellen Lippman.
The evening was beautiful, the room was festive, the goodies were plentiful and the donations were amazing. Many thanks to our PJA community of parents, students, faculty, donors, alumni and friends. We are strong and thriving because of your commitment and we are so grateful.

Our auction is PJA’s most important fundraiser, because it benefits our scholarship fund and provides essential operating support. Over half of PJA students receive some scholarship support, which reflects our diverse student body. Demand for financial assistance continues to increase, in response to today’s economic climate. Your support will ensure the continued growth and success of PJA and the education of our children in the Middot (fundamental values) we hold dear – study, appreciation, respect, responsibility, community and Jewish identity.
Through your continued support, PJA has educated hundreds of capable and confident students who have strong values. Our alumni are leaders, deep thinkers, active community members and achievers.
Founded in 1961 as Hillel Academy, the first class had 26 students in grades 3-6. Now, 51 years later, we have over 325 children enrolled in our infant toddler program, preschool, lower school and middle school. As we educate more of our community’s children, the auction’s impact becomes even greater.
Help us shine a spotlight on what makes PJA so wonderful!
