Start your PJ library today! The Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ is proud to share a gift of FREE Jewish books and music for families raising Jewish children from 6 months through 6 years old. Every month, families enrolled in PJ Library receive a high-quality, age appropriate and beautifully illustrated book or music CD. The books are about Jewish holidays, values and folk tales. Over the past ten years, Greater MetroWest PJ Library has reached more than 6,000 families and almost 10,000 children. Special needs children older than 7 who would benefit from the books in our age range should call (973) 929-3128 to enroll.
PJ Library is MORE than just books and music. Our Greater MetroWest NJ programs help families to connect and form Jewish bonds through local fun, educational, musical and social Jewish experiences all year round!
PJ Library in Greater MetroWest is a gift from our lead donors Maxine and Ted z” l Murnick, Paula and Jerry Gottesman Family Supporting Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
