A Jewish Journey through Books and Reading
PJ Library®, a national project created by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, provides free, high-quality Jewish children's books and music to families across the continent through a monthly subscription. Selections feature a wide array of themes such as Jewish holidays, folktales and Jewish family life. Families also receive parenting resources to enhance the reading experience.
Today, more than 70,000 families in more than 135 communities in the United States and Canada are able to explore the timeless core values of Judaism through the art and literature of these free children's books!
PJ Library in Greater Boston is administered locally by the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston, with additional generous funding from local donors. Subscriptions are available to children in 97 Greater Boston communities, ages birth through 5.5 years.
The response to the PJ Library program in Greater Boston has been overwhelming. We have already enrolled the maximum number of children for whom we have funding.
Please complete the online registration form to have your child placed on our waitlist. As funding becomes available, we will enroll children from the waitlist based on registration date and notify you via email. While you are on the waitlist, you will receive our monthly email newsletter with information on family events happening throughout the Greater Boston area. These events are open to the entire community and are a great way to connect with other families.
Children six months or younger are eligible to receive a PJ Library subscription without delay through the free Welcome Baby! program. Once you complete your PJ Library registration, contact information for eligible families will automatically be shared with representatives of the Welcome Baby! program.
