From PJ Library’s start, partnership has been at the core of the program’s business model. We joined forces with partners in community after community, and now, ten years later, those partnerships have made PJ Library a vibrant community program that enhances hundreds of thousands of Jewish households.
Our partners are more than business associates. They share our interest in preserving heritage and engaging the next generation in Jewish life. And, happily, they are people we enjoy being with, learning from, and building community with.
PJ Library’s major funding partners, the PJ Library Alliance, gather bi-annually to socialize, share ideas, and engage in deep discussion around the PJ Library program, its current work, and its plans for the future. Through gifts of $1 million and above, each member of this funding partnership is making a significant impact on the program and its ability to broaden its reach, expand its offerings, and engage more families.
The PJ Library Alliance recently spent nearly three days together. Our gathering took us to the International PJ Library conference in Baltimore to meet with the professionals running PJ Library programs in more than 200 communities around the world. We then traveled to Washington, D.C., to learn from experts in marketing, education, and philanthropy.
Our final stop was the West Wing of the White House for a special briefing on civic engagement and education. It was the culmination of an extraordinary few days of learning and collaboration.
We may not be able to top a visit to the West Wing at our next gathering, but I know we will have new and exciting PJ Library developments to share and celebrate, thanks to our work together.
