PJ Library is a program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, which connects children ages 6 months to 8 years and their families through free Jewish books and music, holiday celebrations, camp-style summer activities and more. It is in partnership with the Federation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. The PJ Library in Cleveland is funded by Iris and the late Mort November in celebration of Debra Ann November’s life.
