Have you heard? PJ Library has expanded to ages 9-11 with PJ Our Way. Now kids get to choose the books they want to receive and even post their own book reviews--all for free! Both parents and kids have shared wonderful feedback with us.

You can learn more about PJ Our Way on the pjourway.org website. We hope you'll sign up today!

Please contact Robyn Cohen (215.320.0404) with any questions about PJ Our Way (ages 9-11 years) or PJ Library (ages 6 mos - 8 years). Get in on the fun!

Every child that is registered for PJ Our Way will be invited to special programs specifically for kids aged 9-11.

Calling all PJ Our Way kids! Do you love to help others, do mitzvot, and read Jewish books?

 

Become a jkidphilly Venturer this summer! 
Back for a third year: jkidphilly Venturer is an opportunity for PJ Our Way kids and their families to explore Jewish values together in new and different ways.

 

  1. Register online or at a jkidphilly program -- once you’ve signed up, you will receive a FREE jkidphilly Venturer wristband!
