PJ Library

PJ Library® sends free Jewish children’s books to families across the world every month. It is a gift of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and made possible through partnerships with philanthropists and local Jewish organizations.

WRJ Involvement in PJ Library® Program

With generous grants from the YES Fund, WRJ has been a partner with the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) since 2012. The partnership initially started to expand access to PJ Library to families living in just one county in Florida in 2012, grew to include 58 congregations in 23 states in 2014, and now WRJ support has contributed to the expansion of access to PJ Library to families raising Jewish children who live in every zip and postal code in the United States and Canada.

In addition to books for the children across North America, our partnership has provided enrichment for parents both online and in person. Beginning in 2017, we have offered live, online learning opportunities for parents and grandparents to help prepare for the fall holidays, Chanukah and Passover. We provide a quarterly e-newsletter, Jewish Life in Your Family Life, with online resources that have been selected especially for families raising young Jewish children. For great ideas for your Jewish family and to subscribe to receive that newsletter, visit ReformJudaism.org. We have partnered with our URJ Camps and PJ Library communities to offer PJ Library Family Camps. These immersive multi-day experiences for families provide the opportunity for community, Shabbat, fun, adventure, and to meet and connect with other families - all on the premises of our beautiful URJ camps.
