Everything that happens during the first five years of a child’s life shapes who they become as adults. That’s why the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle offers an age-appropriate opportunity to help strengthen your child’s Jewish identity: PJ Library!
When you sign up for PJ Library (PJ is for pajamas), they’ll send you a free, high-quality book or CD each month. Regardless of your level of observance or affiliation, the gift of stories and song is sure to enrich your entire family’s Jewish journey. Book topics include holidays, traditions, family values, Jewish identity and Jewish heroes. The books are carefully selected by top national Jewish educators, with an eye on books that are joyful, highly engaging, and represent the best Jewish children’s literature available.
