PJ Library

We'll send your child a Jewish bedtime story or music CD every month - for free!

PJ Library, a national book and Jewish family engagement program, sends high-quality, age-appropriate Jewish books and music to families each month - with no strings attached. PJ Library of Southern New Jersey is available to families with children, ages 6 months to 11 years, living in Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties. 

This is a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, made possible through partnerships with local philanthropists and the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey. 

PJ Our Way

PJ Our Way offers the gift of exceptional books with Jewish themes to kids ages 9-11, books that they choose themselves!

 

Monthly Choice

Every month, from the 1st – 10th, kids visit this website to choose a book from a selection of four high-quality titles that have been reviewed by a panel of PJ educators, parents, and kids. That's 12 free books a year! To make the choice easier, every title offered comes with a synopsis and author bios, ratings and reviews, and video trailers. Kids can also take polls and quizzes, participate in monthly interviews and challenges, and comment on blog posts.

 

Parent Input

On the Parent Blog, parents are invited to read about each book and find suggestions for family conversations. These blog posts give parents tools to help children make book choices that are appropriate for them.

 

A Safe Website

The PJ Our Way website is a safe place where kids can choose books, write reviews, and share ideas with others from around the country. All content on the website is moderated by PJ educators.

 

Design Team

Every fall, members of PJ Our Way may apply to be part of our national Design Team. Design Team members have early access to PJ Our Way books and create videos and reviews for the website. To become more involved with writing reviews and blogs, connect with us at info@pjourway.org.
