Biz ShowCase: London Jewish Federation
Jewish London seeks to make a difference in our com- munity by helping those in need and enriching lives by supporting a myriad of programs and services with a commitment to our Jewish heritage, roots, and values.
Education is a fundamental Jewish value, and reading to your children is critical. Study after study has shown that it impacts a child’s development. The mere pres- ence of books in a home increases the level of education they can reach and helps to inspire curiosity, wonder, and excitement in a child’s mind.
Finding the right books and making the time to read as a family can be hard. That’s where PJ Library comes in.
PJ Library sends free Jewish children’s books to families in London every month. Something magical happens when parents sit down together to read with their chil- dren. That’s why PJ Library stories help your family talk about values and traditions that are important and pro- vides tools to have meaningful Jewish conversations to- gether. 8 out of 10 PJ Library Parents say they feel more prepared to have conversations about Jewish values, holidays, and customs because of their participation in the program.
A program of Jewish London and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, PJ Library is made possible through the gen- erosity of the Jewish community. Jewish families with kids ages 6 months through 8 years old, are welcome to sign up. PJ Library welcomes all Jewish families, what- ever your background, knowledge, family make-up, or level of observance may be.
Your children are learning about the world around them through the stories they hear. PJ Library books can bring Jewish ideas and inspiration for you and your children to share together. You will also be invited to participate in dynamic family programs that let you explore your heritage and get together with other members of our community.
