PJ Library

PJ Library is an award-winning program for children from birth to 8-years-old. Founded by philanthropist Harold Grinspoon to promote Jewish literacy and family engagement, each child registered with PJ Library receives a free high-quality, age-appropriate Jewish-themed book, mailed to the home every month.

Facilitated by the Mandell JCC, PJ Library books are a gift from The Harold Grinspoon Foundation and funded locally by the Jewish Community Foundation, advised by the Zachs Family and the Lions of Judah through the Women's Philanthropy Division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford
