Snuggly storytimes have long been a staple in Jewish homes and preschools. When PJ Library began sending Jewish books to homes almost 15 years ago, those special bedtime moments between parents and children became Jewish moments as well. As part of PJ Library, PJ Goes to School offers a holistic approach to family engagement and Jewish education, initiating conversations about Jewish values in schools in the same way PJ Library inspires dialogue in the home.

Join PJ Goes to School educators Sarah and Alison as we explore strengthening the family-school relationship through Jewish literacy. Together we will examine how to integrate books into your classrooms, explore the Jewish values in all books and learn how you can confidently create book-related experiences that bring parents into the conversation – and into the classroom.
