Building new connections for family and children through Jewish Buffalo.


PJ Library encourages Jewish families with young children to explore Jewish literature together by sending an age appropriate Jewish content book to enrolled children between the ages of six months to eight years.  Your family is eligible if you have a child/children in the age range with one Jewish parent in the household and you currently reside in Western New York. 


PJ Our Way is the next chapter of PJ Library, for kids ages 8 ½-11. Every month, kids visit the PJ Our Way 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. On the Parent Blog, parents are invited to read about each book and find suggestions for family conversations. 

Created by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF), PJ Library and PJ Our Way are free for your family because it is
funded by local philanthropists, PJ Alliance Partners, and the Buffalo Jewish Federation, in partnership with HGF.
