Rabbi Yerachmiel D. Fried wrote a beautiful response to a young Jewish family searching for tools to create meaningful Jewish experiences for their child in his Jan. 14 Ask the Rabbi column.
In addition to reciting the Shema, sharing books with Jewish themes and concepts is a powerful way to enhance young families’ Jewish bedtime rituals. Children’s books have a real capacity to teach the principles, lessons and traditions that we strive to instill in our sons and daughters. Finding the right books and making the time to read as a family can be challenging and that’s where PJ Library comes in.
PJ Library sends free Jewish children’s books to families across the world every month to keep. These books share Jewish stories that help families come together and talk about values, tradition and culture.
PJ Library is made possible by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and, in North Texas, is a gift from the Center for Jewish Education of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas through a generous grant from the Mankoff Family Foundation.
