PJ Library Gratitude Mitzvah Project

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!
