PJ Library in CNY

A gift for Jewish children and their families

PJ Library (PJ for pajamas) is a nationally acclaimed literacy program, started by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, that gives free Jewish bedtime stories, CDs and DVDs to families raising Jewish children.

In addition to this wonderful free gift for Jewish children and their families, the PJ Library in CNY chapter regularly holds special PJ family events. These events are designed to connect children and parents with other Jewish families and to the PJ Library program. PJ Library events incorporate some Jewish value or tradition with the goal of giving families resources to create a Jewish home.

The PJ Library in CNY chapter is a program of the JCC of Syracuse and supported by the Pomeranz, Shankman and Martin Charitable Foundation, Jewish Federation of Central New York, Congregation Beth Sholom-Chevra Shas, Shaarei Torah Orthodox Congregation of Syracuse, Syracuse Hebrew Day School, Temple Adath Yeshurun and Temple Concord. PJ Library in CNY serves children from birth to 8 years old in Cortland, Madison, Onondaga and Oswego Counties.
