Free Jewish Books for Children
Thousands of Miami children can enjoy bedtime stories about Jewish values and traditions, thanks to the Greater Miami Jewish Federation's early childhood program called The PJ Library.
Named after the bedtime garb, The PJ Library aims to help families teach their children the tenets of Judaism through children’s books.
Families who subscribe to The PJ Library open their mailboxes each month to find a brand-new book featuring a Jewish topic. The program is free for Miami-Dade County children up to the age of eight and allows youngsters to build their own Jewish library at home. Register here.
Miami's PJ Library also hosts events throughout the year that offer young children and their parents a chance to explore their Jewish roots together. All of these events are free and open to the public.
The PJ Library is part of a national program founded in 2005 by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Miami’s PJ Library chapter is funded by the Blank Family Foundation, started by one of Federation’s founders, Sam Blank. It is being operated in partnership with a wide range of early childhood centers, Jewish community centers, synagogues and agencies who share the program’s goal to reach as many children as possible.
