THE PJ LIBRARY AND PJ OUR WAY FOR OUR COMMUNITY
The PJ Library, an international, award-winning Jewish family engagement program, was created by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. PJ Library sends FREE Jewish children's books to families in our Jewish community every month. We know that something magical happens when parents sit down together to read with their children. PJ Library shares Jewish stories that can help your family talk together about values, traditions, and culture that are important to you.
Families with kids ages 6 months through 8 years old with Judaism as part of their lives, are welcome to sign up, regardless of their Jewish background, knowledge, or observance.
Kids in our Jewish community can continue their PJ experience by signing up for PJ Our Way, the next chapter of PJ Library for kids ages 9-11.
"PJ" stands for pajamas, a fitting name for a program whose organizers believe a bond is formed between children and their parents during story time before bed. The PJ Library is designed to strengthen the identities of Jewish children and families and their relationship to the Jewish community.
The PJ Library in Wichita is generously funded by the Adam E. Beren Foundation in partnership with the Mid-Kansas Jewish Federation and the Joan Beren Jewish Community School.
