About PJ Library

As a parent, grandparent, aunt, or uncle, you may be familiar with the much-loved PJ Library program. PJ Library was created by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Its magic lies in its ability to unite every generation with moments of discovery that enrich a family’s Jewish journey regardless of the level of observance or affiliation.

PJ Library in Atlanta is a gift to young families from Federation, supported by donations from the greater Atlanta community. For almost a generation, Atlanta’s Jewish families with young children (ages 0-8 years) have been exploring their Jewish heritage and building their Jewish identity through books and CDs with reading guides that arrive at their homes each month.

Reading is a powerful way to connect with children, and it also opens up a world to explore with your children what lies beyond the pages of the book. Your Federation provides these books as a gift, but that’s just the beginning. We offer programs and activities to bring families together through experiences that enrich the connections outside the pages of the books. Songs, social opportunities, and even more stories all come together through PJ Library events to enable young Atlanta children and families to connect to their heritage and engage in the community.

This program provides books and CDs for more than 3,500 Jewish children within a 50-mile radius of Atlanta, and we are looking to grow! Your gift can make PJ Library possible for more children.

For children ages 8-12, PJ Our Way brings monthly Jewish chapter books into the homes of Jewish families around Atlanta.  Each month, the child goes online to choose one of four available PJ Our Way books and 6-8 weeks later, that book will arrive at that child’s home. You can sign up as soon as the child is 8 1/2!
