PJ Plus builds on the overwhelming success of PJ Library, using PJ Library books as a springboard to develop engaging and inspiring weekly classes for parents or grandparents and their tots. It's where the fun of a play date meets the value of Jewish family education.
Parents are their children's most powerful Jewish teachers. When you learn with your children, you are a model for lifelong Jewish learning.
PJ Plus is a 7-10 week program where children aged 1.5 through 3 years and their parents (or grandparents) participate in a fun and meaningful educational experience embracing Jewish values.
The curriculum-based program introduces Jewish content through experiential, interactive, hands-on activities, including storytelling, arts and crafts, music, movement, puppets and more with a free PJ Library book on Jewish themes for your child to keep.
Parent and child share an educationally compelling and meaningful time together. Optional take-home activities, inspired by themes covered in class, will help parents bring Jewish values and ideas into their own homes.
PJ Plus is programming where young Jewish families can connect with one another in a warm, welcoming, inclusive environment.
We just registered for our second session of PJ Plus Parent & Tot Class, and we couldn't be happier! We love how the Sunday classes compliment and expands on the wonderful messages and themes of the PJ books. The curriculum is always age-appropriate, interactive and engaging, and it's the perfect mix of art, music, play, and learning. The class has helped make Jewish concepts and holidays understandable and meaningful for our son. Thank you PJ Plus for greatly enriching our son's Jewish educational experience!!!

“Leah really liked the classes (so did her daddy) and would jump out of bed in the morning when we'd come to get her up, it was great as parents for us to see her enthusiasm and pleasure. Mora Sara was wonderful and great with the children and we genuinely had a positive experience… as it's really the only place (other than home) where she gets to experience Jewish content. I was thrilled to see her handmade grogger for Purim.“;
