As a PJ Library family, you understand the magic of receiving and reading PJ Library books with your child each month. Through PJ Library stories, music and programs, families like yours are able to actively connect themselves and their children to our Jewish heritage.
In the past year, PJ Library New Hampshire (a program of our Jewish Federation) has sent books to over 300 homes and brought many free and low cost programs to families all across our state.
Jewish Federation of New Hampshire believes so strongly in the importance of the values and connections fostered by PJ Library, that we invest in every subscription to sustain this transformative program. The Federation understands that families are the key to ensuring a vibrant Jewish New Hampshire and that PJ Library is the gateway to first steps in many family’s Jewish journeys.
To that end, Federation invests over $30,000 annually to continue subscriptions and programs, ensuring that every eligible family in New Hampshire has access to PJ! In just one year, our subscriber rate has more than doubled and with your help, we can sustain this rate of growth into the future.
