Watch "The Magic of The PJ Library┬«"  

Promotional video captures the essence of the PJ program.

THIS INSPIRING 4-and-a-half-minute video conveys the magical effect of  The PJ Library on young Jewish families. Each month, participants receive an age-appropriate, free Jewish children's book in the mail. These books turn snuggly bedtime moments into Jewish moments.


Watch this video to learn more about The PJ Library program:



The PJ Library was created and primarily funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Located in dozens of Jewish communities throughout the country, the program provides high quality children's books and CDs to encourage parents to begin Jewish experiences and learning opportunities for their children. The program also encourages parents to spend quality time together with their children to explore our rich heritage.

 Parents or guardians can register their children ages 6 months to 6 years to receive a free Jewish book or CD each month for one year as part of the PJ Library for the Greater Palm Beaches program, which is implemented by the Friedman Commission for Jewish Education.  It is offered to children living in this area thanks to generous support from the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, Friedman CJE, Barbara and Jack Kay, and Dorothy Adler as well as the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

To enroll, children must live in the Greater Palm Beach area (west to Wellington, south to Boynton Beach, and north to Martin County).

Thank you for your interest in this wonderful program.  Our funding allows for the enrollment of 1,200 children on a first come, first served basis.
