Save the Date for our 2020 PJA Auction!
Sunday, December 6

We're going VIRTUAL this year. Wear your favorite hat and join us for a wonderfully themed evening: Hats Off to PJA!

More details coming soon.

We are so grateful for the support from our amazing community who helped us raise over $800,000 for PJA at our 2019 Auction.

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 – Limmud (study), Hodah'ah (appreciation), Kavod (respect), Akharayut (responsibility), Kehillah (community) and Zehut (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. Today, PJA serves hundreds of students both on campus and virtually each day. As we educate more of our community’s children, the Auction’s impact becomes even greater.
