The Israeli Leadership Council (ILC),
The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation and
The Harold Grinspoon Foundation
are proud to introduce:
“Sifriyat Pijama B’America”
This program offers FREE books in Hebrew to Israeli-American families wishing to use Hebrew language books during reading time with their children.
You may know about the spectacular PJ Library Book Program in the United States made possible through the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. http://www.pjlibrary.org. PJ Library mails free, high-quality Jewish children's books and music to families across the continent on a monthly basis. Today, more than 70,000 families in more than 135 communities in the United States and Canada are able to explore the timeless core values of Judaism through the art and literature of these free children's books.
PJ Library also has a sister program in Israel called: Sifriyat Pijama. This year, more than 44,000 Israeli children are receiving Hebrew language books through their pre-school and kindergarten classes. The Sifriyat Pijama books are approved by the Israeli Ministry of Education and the Israeli Center for Libraries.
Thanks to the generous support of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation and the Israeli Leadership Council (ILC), we are proud to introduce: “Sifriyat Pijama B’America.”
Sifriyat Pijama B’America, like its counterpart in Israel, is a Hebrew language program for children 3-6 years old. Like PJ Library it distributes Jewish values-based books of high quality, books that inspire meaningful conversations between parents and children.
Participating children are introduced to nine high-quality children’s books and a CD in a special Sifriyat Pijama edition. The books are delivered to the registered child’s home and contain a parent guide with suggestions of activities and discussions for parents to enjoy with their children.
We believe that by learning about Jewish values from a young age, and hearing stories in the Hebrew language, Jewish children are likely to share a strong appreciation and affinity for their shared Jewish culture and language. They retain a strong Jewish identity and appreciation of Hebrew, the Biblical language of the Jewish people.
