The Jewish Children's Regional Service (JCRS) is celebrating PJ Library's seventh yearof operation in the Greater New Orleans area. PJ Library is a highly acclaimed national Jewish outreach and engagement initiative that partners with local communities to provide a treasury of free Jewish books to children aged 6 months through 8 years. Every month, each participating child receives a gift book in the mail--specially selected by early childhood experts--that is age-specific and includes a variety of Jewish themes, such as holidays and folk tales. The engaging stories and pictures are ideal for parents and young children to cuddle up with at bedtime. As of now, 261 Jewish children in Greater New Orleans receive a monthly PJ selection through the JCRS. The PJ Library has expanded nationally every year since its inception in 2005, with PJ Library books now reaching more than 100,000 children per month in 185 communities throughout the United States and Canada. In Greater New Orleans, The PJ Library is administered by the JCRS through the generosity of the Goldring Family Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. All Jewish children in the Greater New Orleans area are invited to participate. Babies may be registered at birth. For information about enrolling your child, please contact Bonnie Lustig at JCRS at 504-828-6334 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
