Free books and music to nurture Jewish families.
 

Reading stories and listening to music with your child are among the most powerful and nurturing early childhood learning experiences.  PJ Library can help you transform these moments into Jewish experiences.
 

Sign up for PJ Library and you’ll receive a free, high quality children’s book or CD each month that will enrich your Jewish family relationships.
 

PJ Library is free: it’s a gift that will nourish a Jewish life from the start. 


Research indicates that Jewish experiences in the first five years establish the basis of your child’s Jewish sense of self. Through PJ Library, parents can create a special time with their children to learn and appreciate their Jewish heritage.


To Join our PJ Library list or to learn more, please email Kathie Wainer or call: 403-537-8592

 

Be sure to ask Kathie about the PJ Tot Shabbat program - a creative, musical Shabbat experience for young ones, as well as Shalom Baby!

About PJ Library

PJ Library Calgary Chag Sameach Series

If you'd like a copy of any of our Chag Sameach booklets (Rosh Hashana, Chanukah, Pesach, and Shavuot) click HERE to email Kathie Wainer.

PJ Library is a Jewish family engagement program:

We mail free, high-quality Jewish children's literature and music to families across the continent on a monthly basis.

Harold Grinspoon

PJ Library is a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, made possible through partnerships with philanthropists and local Jewish organizations. Today, families in hundreds of communities across the United States and Canada are able to explore the timeless core values of Judaism through books and music.

Who we are

Many talented people across North America make PJ Library the award-winning program it is today. Locally, it is brought to you in part by generous donations to Federation's annual United Jewish Appeal campaign, and hard-working, devoted Federation staff.

Supporting Education

Your child can receive an age appropriate Jewish book or CD from six months to eight years old, direct to your home at no charge. Register at www.pjlibrary.org or by clicking the title above.

Enhancing Jewish Identity

Through music and stories, our rich Jewish heritage can be shared between parents and children. Early exposure is key to firmly establishing a strong Jewish identity. PJ Library is also a community that connects parents and strengthens our Jewish connections.
