We all know the power of reading stories with young children. These nurturing, joyous, and beneficial early learning experiences build the emotional and cognitive foundation for each child. The PJ Library (PJ as in pajamas) provides your family with a free treasury of Jewish books and music. The program supports families in their Jewish journey by sending Jewish-content books and music on a monthly basis to children from age six months to five years. Created by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, The PJ Library is funded nationally in partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, local philanthropists, and Jewish organizations. In Vancouver, the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver and the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver are thrilled to launch The PJ Library.
Thanks to the generosity of several local donors and the Jewish Community Foundation, The PJ Library is available for at no charge to the first 360 children living in the Greater Vancouver area in the first year. If demand exceeds the number of available spots, we will begin a waiting list as we search for additional funding.
Each child you enroll in The PJ Library will receive a monthly gift of a high-quality, age-appropriate Jewish book or CD, as well as a reading guide to enhance your family’s experience. All materials are carefully selected by a team of experts.
