If your or someone you know in San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, or Sonoma counties are raising young Jewish kids, you need to sign them up for PJ Library. This is a free book-of-the month club, where the child (ages 6 months to 7) will receive an age-appropriate Jewish book each month for a year.
I signed up Zachary and we’ve gotten three so far. One was a book we already had (we donated it to a Jewish preschool) but so far the others we hadn’t seen before and we’ve had fun reading them.
Who pays for this? The Jewish Community Federation and the Jim Joseph Foundation.
By the way, you can check the website for other communities that participate in this program, or pay for a subscription as well.
