PJ LIBRARY IDAHO RECEIVES $5000 GRANT FROM THE DAVID AND JANET POLAK FOUNDATION

CABI recently received a $5,000 grant from the David and Janet Polak Foundation. The David and Janet Polak Foundation understands the impact of PJ Library on the Jewish future; this grant’s focus is to enroll as many children as possible in PJ Library.

PJ Library Idaho, led by Joanna Jost, was one of 15 recipients in North America and around the globe for funding in support of the growth of PJ Library. PJ Library is an award-winning program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, providing high-quality, age-appropriate Jewish books to children each month in the US, Canada, Russia, and 25 other countries. PJ Library and its sister program in Israel, Sifriyat Pijama, currently reach 680,000 children and their families. PJ Libray and PJ Our Way recognized PJ Library Idaho for the "amazing work [it is] doing to connect with families across the state."

This grant, so needed at this challenging time, allows us to expand our outreach to families raising Jewish children in Idaho, through PJ Library. Reaching and then providing excellent programs to engage families through PJ Library is a high priority for our Jewish community. We believe that PJ Library is essential to grow and sustain our Jewish community into the future. 

The David and Janet Polak Foundation understands the impact of PJ Library on the Jewish future; this grant’s focus is to enroll as many children as possible in PJ Library. 

Kol Hakavod, Joanna!!!

Free Jewish Books and Music for Idaho Kids

PJ Library books celebrate important aspects of Jewish culture, values and tradition and become cherished bedtime stories. The age appropriate books and CDs are a gift to your children and will be mailed to your home once a month, helping your family develop meaningful connections to Judaism and the community. PJ Library extends beyond your home, with community programs, informative newsletters with activity suggestions, and more. All families raising Jewish children from six months of age through eight years old are welcome to sign up! You can browse a sampling of PJ Library books in the foyer at CABI.

PJ OUR WAY

What is PJ Our Way?

PJ Our Way is the next chapter of PJ Library for kids ages 9-12. With PJ Our Way, rather than receiving a specific book in the mail, kids can go to www.pjourway.org every month to choose the book they want to receive. Kids can also submit reviews and videos about the books. And they can apply to be part of the national Design Team that has early access to PJ Our Way books and helps create content for the website.

PJ Our Way is a free gift for you and your family from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
