PJ Library


Do you have a child ages 6 month old through 8 years old? Interested in high-quality FREE Jewish books delivered to your home? If you answered "yes" to these questions, sign up here to receive the gift of free Jewish bedtime stories and songs each month!

PJ Library is a Jewish family engagement program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, enabling families to explore the timeless core values of Judaism through books and music.


The Y is once again the recipient of a New York Engagement Grant awarded by PJ Library, a flagship program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation that provides free books to families raising Jewish children all over the world.
Our Y Beginnings Parenting Center and Y Nursery School are thrilled to offer families "Building Bridges: Uptown Together," a year-long program of special events connected to Shabbat and Jewish holidays, and designed for families with babies, toddlers and young children (age 0 to 5). 
Stay tuned for more details about these special events, happening from September 2019 through May 2020, on Friday evenings and Sundays during the day. Families are welcome to join any event! RSVP links will be posted below, closer to each program.    
Please reach out to Mara with any questions or to join the email list for future events (mbragg@ywashhts.org).
Winter and Spring 2020

--Count the Ways! Year-End Celebration 
Sunday, May 17, from 10 to 10:45 am
Together in community from the comfort of your own home!

Brighten your Sunday morning with singing and dancing, as we celebrate ukulele-style. We have so much to count: from making it through these days (yay!), to sunnier times ahead, just as we mark the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot later this month. Can't wait to sing and celebrate together at our 8th and final PJ Library event this year! 
RSVP: please complete this registration form to receive the Zoom login information. See you online!
