Discover stories that celebrate the joy of Jewish culture, values and tradition.

Want high-quality Jewish books delivered to your child each month? PJ Library is empowering Jewish families around the world – from the unaffiliated to the deeply involved – to create stronger Jewish homes that foster children’s curiosity about their heritage and help families explore their identity. Named after pajamas, PJ Library supports reading at any time of day, but we know many families sit down to read books at bedtime.

“PJ Library plays an important part in my toddler’s Jewish education and his nightly bedtime routine. My son loves his PJ Library books and keeps his favorites on rotation and easily accessible in his crib. Why wouldn’t you sign up? It’s free – no gimmicks or fine print. Just free books delivered to your Jewish kids monthly. What’s not to love!” Caryn (Zeitlin) Emmer
