I want to mix slices of lemon into some jam from the store. How long will it keep in the fridge after I do this?

My plan is to wash this Meyer lemon really thoroughly, then slice it up thin and mix it into this (currently unopened) jar of blueberry jam. Once I do that, how long is it safe to keep in the fridge? My instinct says that the abundance of sugar and acid should keep things pretty safe, but I don't know whether that's true. Ideally, I'd like to keep it around for at least a month without worrying.
