Free Books: Build your Jewish Library!
Through our PJ Library® program, we are building Jewish libraries for young families in Cleveland. If you have a child or grandchild ages six-months to eight-years-old, you can receive free Jewish books and music delivered to your mailbox every month.
Over 4,300 local Cleveland children ages 6 months to 8 years have enrolled in the PJ Library program since we launched in 2009.
In just five years, 100,000+ Jewish books and CDs have been delivered to the homes of local Cleveland children for free, strengthening their Jewish connection.
Nearly 80% of Cleveland families who participate in PJ Library say that receiving free books and music has increased their conversations about Judaism in their homes.
Message to Mort & Iris from Harold Grinspoon
“In our daughter’s name, Debra Ann November, the PJ Library® Program sends monthly packages, delights children, connects our community, and builds a stronger future.”
―Mort & Iris November
In partnership with the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, PJ Library® in Cleveland is generously funded by Mort and Iris November in celebration of Debra Ann November's life.
Fun Events: Meet other Young Families!
Getting to know other young families is a great way to feel connected to our community. We hope you’ll attend an upcoming event, where you can meet all kinds of Jewish families.
