Free books for Jewish children ages 6 months - 8 years!
Laura Ross, director of the PJ Library program in Greater New Haven says,
“What an incredible opportunity! PJ provides something extraordinarily special-the chance for our children to form their own ways of connecting to Judaism early on in their development. In addition, as they grow the books grow with them!”
The New Haven PJ Library has been serving children from the ages of 6 months to 6.5 years for five years, but through the provision of an anonymous donor it can now offer children up to 8 years old age-appropriate books. All segments of the Jewish community can enroll in the program; there is no need to be a member of a synagogue or JCC. The program for the entire Greater New Haven area is headquartered at the JCC in Woodbridge but books are distributed throughout Southern Connecticut. PJ Library’s presence in the Greater New Haven community creates an opportunity for Jewish conversation from parent to child, as well as parent to parent.
Kids and parents can expect to receive their books within six to eight weeks. Sign up online at or call Laura Ross at 203-387-2424, X317.
