This program provides families raising Jewish children from 6 months–8 years old with a FREE treasury of Jewish books and music!

PJ Library in Greater Washington is a gift from The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, the United Jewish Endowment Fund, the Howard and Geraldine Polinger Family Foundation, the Perlin Family Foundation, the Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies, the Charles E Smith Family Foundation and the David Bruce Smith Foundation.
