Young Families and Children love PJ Library!

PJ Library at Tamid offers two complimentary and fun pathways to engage young children in Jewish life. First, bring your children to our Young Family Shabbat and Holiday Programs which include story, song, and a nosh. Second, enroll in our “books at home” program and we will send your child (birth to age 9) a Jewish book each month.
