PJ Library Goes Virtual

Families are finding new ways to engage Jewishly during the pandemic through PJ Library, a Federation program that provides free monthly Jewish-themed children’s books to Jewish homes. Since mid-March, PJ Library has offered a virtual daily schedule of social media posts offering parents virtual storytime, music videos and creative hands-on art projects. The goal is to connect families with shared Jewish experiences from the comfort and safety of home. “We’ve presented everything from woodworking to holiday experiences, like an apples and honey tasting party for Rosh Hashanah and a DIY edible sukkah for Sukkot,” said PJ Library Co-Chair Jerri Bassuk. “My Co-Chair Heather Pachter and I are very proud of how we’ve been able to serve our PJ Families,” she said. As a result of these efforts, during the past eight months, subscriptions have grown from approximately 3,750 to 3,880 participants. PJ Library is made possible by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and the Blank Family Foundation. To enroll in PJ Library and PJ Our Way (for children 8.5-12) click here.
