The collaborative program featured a story time led by JAO Librarian Reba Gordon, two craft projects and games outside on the playground. "My children loved the stories! All the children in attendance were captivated by Ms. Gordon who is a delight- ful and charming storyteller. Thank you again for hosting this and other wonderful events," said PJ Library morn, Stacy Newman. PJ Library helps grow our children's values with Jewish concepts. It ensures that they make Judaism second nature, instead of second best. It nur- tures relationships to Jewish tradition, learning, beliefs and practices. The beauty of the PJ Library is that it creates Jewish memories by bringing Jewish content to the recipients' homes. With beautifully written and color- ful books, parents read to their children stories of treasured Jewish values like kindness, respect, and tolerance as well as the Jewish holidays sparking an interest in the child and a sense of belong- ing. PJ morn Marni Stahlman explained the positive experi- ence her family has had with the program, "PJ Library has enriched my daughter Lily's reading experiences. It is wonderful to have stories for her that promote our Jewish heritage and values. She is beyond excited each and every time we go to our mailbox and see the envelope with the PJ Library logo. She knows instantly what it is and can't wait for bedtime to have that be her story for the night." JFGO then magnifies the effect of the books by provid- ing relevant community pro- grams and partnerships with the synagogues and agencies. The Federation was excited to collaborate with the Jewish Academy in celebration of Passover. It was a valuable op - portunity to show PJ families the school and the educational opportunities it can provide to children who will soon be eligible to attend. To learn more visit, www.
