This week’s submission comes from the 2012 PJ Library North American Conference.
Each spring, PJ Library holds an invitational North American Conference for PJ Program Professionals, Partners, Lay Leaders, and Donors. The goal of the conference is to increase the effectiveness of the PJ Library program in reaching and engaging Jewish families in Jewish life by developing the outreach, programming, community organizing, and fundraising skills of local PJ Library communities.
SAMMY SPIDER’S FIRST CONFERENCE
Attending the annual event for the first time this year was Sylvia Rouss‘s Sammy the Spider character. He was the honored guest of the PJ Library community of the Greater Palm Beaches area.
The Sammy Spider Traveling Curriculum Project was developed by Lorraine & Jack N. Friedman Commission for Jewish Education of the Palm Beaches‘ Jewish Family Life Department Director Amy Bergman and Associate Erika Simon, who showcased the effort as model of best practices at the convention.
