PJ Our Way
People often ask what comes after PJ Library? In 2016, we launched the answer to that question with PJ Our Way. PJ Our Way offers the gift of exceptional books with Jewish themes to kids ages 8½-11 – books that they choose themselves!
Every month, from the 1st – 10th, kids visit this website to choose a book from a selection of four high-quality titles that have been reviewed by a panel of PJ educators, parents, and kids. That’s 12 free books a year! To make the choice easier, every title offered comes with a synopsis and author bios, ratings and reviews, and video trailers. Kids can also take polls and quizzes, participate in monthly interviews and challenges, and comment on blog posts. The PJ Our Way site is a safe and moderated space, perfect for acclimating older kids to using the web independently.

Russian-Speaking Jewish PJ Library
Columbus was selected in spring 2016 to launch Russian-Speaking Jewish PJ Library, serving Jewish children ages 6 months through 11 and their families. Columbus is one of a handful of cities, nationwide, to be piloting this initiative. The program has grown to over 55 children. This initiative comes to Columbus through a grant from the Genesis Philanthropy Group and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
Twelve times a year, PJ Library delivers books and music straight to your child’s home. The RSJ PJ Library Professional provides community outreach to engage families through local programming including holiday celebrations and gatherings. The programs incorporate Jewish values, as well as elements of Russian culture and literature.
