Here’s the link to their Home Page:
As an adult who is newly converting to Judaism or has converted but still learning, you can learn so much from PJLibrary (….as you are at the Elementary Stage of getting to your new FAITH)!
Teaching Children Jewish Values from Pre-birth
Click on the following link to find some very useful information particularly if you are Jewish Parent or desire to be one.
The information can also be useful to Parents-to-be, Grand-parents, Aunts and Uncles, etc…
PJLibrary sends out free books to children from 0-8 years monthly for the purpose of encouraging parents to teach them Jewish values.
You can register your children to receive these books at no cost. If your children already attend a Jewish School, then do add that in your registration form for each child in your household.
PJLibrary has a wide range of ideas, books, music that would help your child learn Jewish values. They even have books for families with mixed religious beliefs, for example Jewish and Muslim or Jewish and Catholic, etc.

PJ Library Books
Books for PJ Library are chosen from among the very best of Jewish children’s books. A committee of writers, early childhood professionals, and Jewish content specialists seek out compelling stories, captivating illustrations, and diverse perspectives on Jewish customs and practice. Through an extensive evaluation process, the committee selects books for every age group. Many of the books selected to be included in PJ Library have received awards including Caldecott Medals and the Sydney Taylor Book awards, given to the best of Jewish children’s literature.
PJLibrary would appreciate donations from time to time so as to keep their work going.
