We are thrilled to share that the following Miami institutions have signed on as 2016-17 Proud PJ Library Community Partners.
These Community Partners are taking advantage of a unique opportunity to leverage the PJ Library brand to strategically engage their own organization’s constituency.
PJ Library is an award winning Jewish family engagement program, created and funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, which strengthens the identities of Jewish families and their relationship to the Jewish community. Supported locally by the Blank Family Foundation, PJ Library is managed by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and offers FREE, high quality Jewish books and music each month to families raising Jewish children ages 6 months through 8 years and through PJ Our Way, for children ages 9-11.
With a total of 13,359 children 0-8 years old and another 3,372 ages 9-11 in our Miami Jewish community, reaching families throughout this geographically-large and culturally-diverse community must be a community-wide priority. The gift of PJ Library helps the organized Jewish community reach out to families who may not be affiliated, to show them the richness, diversity and fun that we have to offer in our many organizations.
We look forward to our Community Partners’ participation in this collaborative effort as we work together to both grow the number of PJ Library subscribers in our Miami community and engage families with young children in meaningful Jewish experiences.
