About PJ Library

With this gift from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, made possible by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and the Blank Family Foundation, thousands of Miami children can enjoy free Jewish books.

Named after the bedtime garb, PJ Library aims to promote a love of reading while exploring timeless Jewish values and traditions.

Families with participating children open their mailboxes each month to find a brand-new book featuring a Jewish topic. The program is free for Miami-Dade County children ages 6 months old through the age of 8 and allows youngsters to build their own Jewish library at home.

PJ Our Way is the next chapter of the program and invites kids ages 9 through 11 to join a secure and engaging online community of peers and select their own monthly book. The books are free of charge and available to Miami-Dade kids, even if they have never participated in PJ Library before!

Our Russian PJ program is reaching out to Russian-speaking Jews in Miami to provide them with PJ Library books and to involve them in exciting programming with other Russian-speaking Jewish families.

The PJ Goes to School initiative provides local Jewish schools with training and support to incorporate PJ Library books into their classrooms to enhance the Jewish content of their educational curriculum.

Get Involved

What began as an idea to invite Jewish families to read together has blossomed into a multidimensional program providing children with the opportunity to both build a personal library of high-quality Jewish children's literature and music and engage in Jewish communal life.

PJ Library in Miami hosts events throughout the year that offer children and their families a chance to explore their Jewish roots together. All of these events are open to the public. We are working hard to reach as many children as possible. Please help us spread the word!
