Peach Pickin’ Good


The Jewish Federation of Howard County helped kick off a sweet year for its PJ Library families. On Sept. 15, the PJ families picked peaches and other harvest fruits at Larriland Farm. The mouth-watering day came just in time for the Sukkot holiday. Yum!

PJ Library Howard County was launched last year to serve the many young families living among Howard County’s 20,000 Jews. The program is made possible through a partnership between the federation, Howard County synagogues and the Jewish preschools in the area and is funded by philanthropists Bernard and Phyllis Nash and Steven and Beverly Koren, among others.
