What does PJ stand for?
Pajamas! We know those special times of reading, dancing and singing together happen when your children are wearing their pajamas.
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.
