Strengthening Jewish Identities for Families

PJ Library resources, including books and programs, play a crucial role in sparking meaningful conversations within families and fostering the development of a profound Jewish identity. These resources serve as gateways for families to embark on journeys that delve into the rich tapestry of Jewish heritage, culture, and traditions. This year, over 20,000 books were delivered to OC Jewish children through PJ Library & PJ Our Way, which brought Jewish narratives into their homes and contributed significantly to forming their Jewish identities. In addition, our dedicated staff extended support by distributing more than 150 baby bags to new parents and organized over 40 low-barrier family events, creating inclusive spaces where families can come together, celebrate their heritage, and strengthen their bonds through shared experiences.
