Friday, October 23, 2009 • 5 Heshvan 5770 • g"a,
Dear LCDS Families, The PJ Library (PJ for pajamas!) engages Jewish children and their families in Jewish life, through literature and time together. Each participating family will receive a monthly mailing of a Jewish children’s book, CD, or the occasional parenting resource. Each book comes with guides to help families use the book(s) in their homes. The book and music list was prepared by leading early-childhood and children’s literature experts. The list includes a wide array of themes such as Jewish holidays, folktales and Jewish family life. Want to sign-up? The PJ Library is FREE to you. All you have to do is visit JewishMiami.org/PJLibrary and enroll your child for a PJ Library subscription. If you are currently enrolled in the program, you need to renew your existing PJ Library subscription. We are working closely with Books & Books and the PJ Library to offer early childhood story times with related hands-on activities. Our next event will be Sunday, November 22nd from 12:301:30 at Books & Books in Bal Harbour Shops, with Hanukkah Stories and art activities—and mark your calendar for the following story time on Sunday, December 13th! Happy Reading–and Shabbat Shalom! Jodi Bruce Dean of Education
