Value-Based Programs

PJ Library books and accompanying programs are categorized by age with a short description of highlighted values and/or program content. Program elements from different books can be mixed and matched. Many programs are adaptable for multi-age programming.

Values Webinars

We have webinar recordings (and accompanying PowerPoint PDFs) for many values produced by Vivian Newman, PJ Library's Early Childhood Education Consultant. These are a great resource for educators looking for creative ways to engage families with PJ books around Jewish values.
