PJ Library sends free Jewish children's books to families every month. The Jewish Federation of Omaha provides opportunities to meet other OMA families!!! A program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, PJ Library is made possible through partnerships with philanthropists and local Jewish organizations. PJ Library in Omaha is a program of the Jewish Federation of Omaha and is generously sponsored by the Dorothy and Myer S. Kripke Institute for Jewish Family Literacy. Families with kids ages six months through eight years old with Judaism as part of their lives, are welcome to sign up, regardless of their Jewish background, knowledge, or observance.
PJ Our Way is the next chapter of PJ Library for kids ages 9-11. With PJ Our Way, rather than receiving a specific book in the mail, kids can go to www.pjourway.org every month to choose the book they want to receive. Kids can also submit reviews and videos about the books. They can apply to be part of the national Design Team that has early access to PJ Our Way books and helps create content for the website. Any child age 9-11 living in the United States is eligible to sign up. Parents can enroll their child beginning when the child turns 8.5, up until the day before their 12th birthday.
Members & Non Members, Ages 0-5 with an adult meet with other Jewish and Interfaith families for a fun-filled morning of preschool-friendly challah making and story time in preparation for Shabbat. After braiding our challah and putting it in the oven to bake, we will enjoy story and craft time. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The program is now managed by PJ Library Omaha and is free for all thanks to a generous grant. Join us for monthly family activities, whether it’s challah braiding, volunteering for the community or having a fun day at the zoo, there’s something for everyone!
