Inclusion permeates our Center. Inclusion is belonging.
Jewish Bedtime Stories & Songs
After a successful Northern Virginia pilot program, The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington is thrilled to launch PJ LIBRARY® to the entire greater Washington Jewish community!
What is PJ Library?
Parents of small children know that stories are for more than just bedtime. The wonderful habit of ending your child’s busy day by reading together inspired this popular national program funded in part through the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
Who’s eligible for PJ Library?
Greater Washington families raising Jewish children between the ages of 6 months and 8 years old. Subscriptions (one per family) are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Invite friends, family, and neighbors to join in as well!
Who’s supporting this generous effort?
The United Jewish Endowment Fund, the Howard and Geraldine Polinger Family Foundation, the Perlin Family Foundation, and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

Featured PJ Book
Estie the Mensch
Estie does not always know how to be around other people and sometimes when her grandmother reminds her to be a mensch, she'd rather not. She'd prefer to be a turtle or a seagull. Eventually, something happens that shows her grandmother and Estie herself what a mensch the girl can really be.
