PJ Library, a national program established by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, helps keep Jewish storytelling alive in Jewish households by providing free Jewish books and music to families with young children. PJ Library came to Metro Detroit in 2006 through Federation’s Alliance for Jewish Education, thanks to a generous gift by the Applebaum Family Foundation. Detroit was one of the first communities to adopt the program, and since then the list of children who receive free books monthly has grown to 1,200.
