About this Community

Welcome to PJ Library in the East Bay! Each month you’ll receive a developmentally appropriate book in the mail. Families share with us how much the books bring Jewish values, holidays, and concepts into their lives and are often considered their favorite books for bedtime, storytime or anytime!

PJ Library is more than just the books. Throughout the year, we host playdates, educational programs, and holiday gatherings where you connect to local families engaging in Jewish life. In addition to programs throughout the East Bay, we also provide concierge services to give your family referrals to Jewish life that work for you. Reach out to concierge@sfjcf.org to get help connecting with other families or finding programing at one of the dozens of Jewish synagogues, JCCs, preschools, Day Schools, or other community organizations in the East Bay– providing everything from Tot Shabbats to Jewish Yoga. Our vibrant Facebook group for East Bay Jewish families is the best place to visit for information about East Bay Jewish programs, events, tips, and more: facebook.com/sprouteastbay

The PJ Library program is under the auspices of the Early Childhood Education Initiative of the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund. Our community is committed to Early Childhood Jewish Education and to addressing the needs of the youngest members of our community and their families. For more information, visit jewishfed.org
