Join PJ Library, the Network and the Jewish Volunteer Center as we model kindness and teach gratitude.
During these difficult times, it is more important than ever to appreciate all our blessings – both large and small. To help, our Jewish tradition teaches us about the concept of hakarat hatov, which translates to “recognizing the good” all around us. Practicing this Jewish value helps children (and us grownups!) remember to be thankful for our lives.
This month, through the “13th Annual Season of Giving: Reimagined”, we invite all families to help others and use these experiences to engage your children in the practice of gratitude.
As PJ Library families, we are grateful for all we have and have made a special commitment to support our Community Toy Drive.
Please join us in making this holiday season special for less-advantaged kids by purchasing toys. Confirm your participation here (https://jewishmiami.org/resources/community_directory/events/rsvp/network_jvc_toy_drive_w_pj_library_rsvp/) and you’ll receive both a link to our Amazon Wish List and a special “PJ Library Gratitude Fun Guide” which will help you teach your kids about gratitude and instill a lasting practice of hakarat hatov in your home.
Thank you for joining us and helping to make this holiday season special for all!

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation has established an Emergency Relief Fund to assist people affected by Hurricane Eta in Central America. As always, Federation will absorb all administrative costs so that 100 percent of funds collected will be used to provide critically needed aid to people in Central America impacted by the disaster.
Our community has decades of experience with hurricanes. We understand the devastation and suffering that follow a catastrophic storm like Hurricane Eta. Even in the midst of our own crisis, let us join together to help people affected — wherever they may live — to rebuild their lives.

Sharsheret: The Jewish Breast & Ovarian Cancer Community supports Jewish women and families facing breast and ovarian cancer. All of the organization’s services are available online and over the phone, including peer support, connection to social workers and web-based resources. During a time when immunocompromised women are losing their support networks because of social distancing, these critical resources are incredibly important.
