Families Connect to Jewish Life, Share Jewish Values Through PJ Library



Zoe, age 10, is a PJ Library graduate, but now she gets the pleasure of reading her collection of Jewish-themed books with her younger sister.

“I think that it is important that all Jewish kids can learn about their religion and history, and PJ Library is perfect for this,” Zoe says. “The books are fun, interesting and by far the best Jewish kids’ books ever.”


Celebrating five years in the Lehigh Valley, PJ Library enhances the lives of Jewish families by delivering free books every month to children ages 6 months through 8 years on a variety of Jewish topics.


“The books are great for sparking discussions about Jewish holidays and values,” says PJ parent Andrea Goldsmith. “Noah and Eva love getting mail addressed to them and count their PJ Library books among some of their favorites.” 


PJ Library also holds frequent events throughout the year to bring families together. PJ recently looked at the “science behind the plagues” for Passover and took a trip to apple orchard for Rosh Hashanah.
