PJ Library®

The PJ Library® is a unique program that seeks to encourage Jewish families with young children to explore Jewish literature.  In order to accomplish that goal, each month The PJ Library® sends an age appropriate Jewish content book or CD to enrolled children between the ages of six months to seven years. Created by The Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF), The PJ Library is funded by local philanthropists and organizations in partnership with HGF.

About Jewish Values

Jewish Holidays most parents aspire to raise a mensch, a kind, caring, and responsible person. Helping out at home, respecting others, showing gratitude, taking care of the earth, and performing acts of kindness -- each of these is a universal value with deep roots in Jewish tradition.

Many PJ Library books teach Jewish values through the stories they tell. The links below take you directly to PJ books that reflect specific Jewish values.
