The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington is thrilled to share PJ Library® (PJ, as in “pajamas”) with our entire community. This program provides families raising Jewish children from 6 months–8 years old with a FREE treasury of Jewish books and music! Every month, families enrolled in PJ Library receive a high-quality, expertly-selected and kid-tested (!) Jewish book or CD as a gift from the community. 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.
