The PJ Library is like a Jewish “Book of the Month” club for kids and it’s absolutely free. This award-winning Jewish family engagement program was created by the Harold Grinspoon, a real estate entrepreneur, as a way to strengthen the identities of Jewish families and their relationship to Jewish community through books. The PJ Library offers free, high-quality Jewish books and music each month to families raising Jewish children ages six months to 5 ½ years old in more than 125 communities across the United States and Canada.
Families in Baristaville can enjoy the benefits of The PJ Library through the MetroWest program. Children living in Essex, Morris, Sussex, and Northern Union counties can receive a FREE age appropriate Jewish content book or CD at their home every month. In addition, parents receive a monthly E-Newsletter with more information about the books and local happenings in the Jewish Community. Kids must be 6 months – 5 1/2 years old to subscribe. The program is also available to special needs children over the age of 5 1/2–just email Andrea Bergman, The PJ Library Coordinator, to discuss the appropriate age level.
There is no limit to how many children can enroll per family and there are NO STRINGS attached. To enroll or to find out more about this free gift book subscription program go to the MetroWest PJ Library page, email Andrea Bergman PJ Library Coordinator or call 973.929.3128.
