UJA is proud to be the local community partner for PJ Library, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation which sends free Jewish books and music to more than 5700 families across the GTA. Families raising Jewish children, ages 6 months through 8 years old, are welcome to sign up, regardless of their Jewish background, knowledge or observance.
PJ Library not only sends out books and CDs but in partnership with local synagogues, Jewish day and supplementary schools, JCC’s and camps, they offer a variety of events and activities to families as well as to the community. These
programs are a wonderful opportunity for young families to connect with each other and to the broader Jewish community.
If you’re looking for a program to attend with your child, PJ Plus is run in conjunction with the JCC’s of Greater Toronto. This weekly class, based on PJ library books, is designed for children 18 months through 3 years old to attend with their parent or grandparent. Participants engage in hands-on Jewish play and learning through stories, circle time, crafts, music, movement and a parent schmooze.
