High Quality Jewish Children's Books

The PJ Library® program reaches out to Jewish families with young children to help create strong Jewish ties by fostering children’s curiosity about their Jewish heritage, and explore their Jewish identity.  Participating families receive a high-quality Jewish children’s book sent to their home every month accompanied, by resources to help facilitate discussion topics. Regardless of your level of observance or affiliation, the gift of stories and songs is sure to enrich your entire family’s Jewish journey.

PJ Library is available for children ages 6 months to 8 years, and the PJ Our Way is available for children ages 9 through 11. Both are supported by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, the Jewish Federation, local philanthropists, and other Jewish organizations.
