A Gift for Jewish Children and Their Families:
Building community through Jewish bedtime stories and songs
JEWISHcolorado is proud to partner with many generous philanthropists and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation to provide an annual subscription of PJ Library to families raising Jewish children ages 6 months through age 8 in Colorado.* Each month Jewish children and their families receive a beautiful book or music CD about some aspect of Jewish culture or tradition mailed directly to their homes.
The power of PJ Library lies in the experience of a parent reading a Jewish bedtime story to a young child. In the span of a few minutes, the child is lulled to sleep with a beautifully-told story, and the parent is inspired to explore Jewish identity and heritage. Through this program, parents and grandparents are introducing their children to the joys of Judaism while, in many cases, reconnecting to their own heritage.
In July 2015, JEWISHcolorado received a grant of $25,000 through the Harold Grinspoon Foundation to expand PJ Library engagement and outreach programs in collaboration with its partner organizations in 4 geographic areas within greater metro Denver/Boulder.
PJ Library is free to Jewish families in the community thanks to the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and donors to JEWISHcolorado’s Annual Campaign. To help support this program locally and ensure that every Jewish family in Colorado can receive this wonderful gift, please “pay it forward” by clicking the link below to make a donation.
