“PJ” STANDS FOR PAJAMAS | PJ Library books turn snuggly bedtime moments into memorable Jewish moments.
We don’t need to tell you that reading to your children is important, but finding the right books and making the time to read as a family can be hard. That’s where PJ Library comes in. We know that something magical happens when parents sit down together to read with their children. PJ Library shares Jewish stories that can help your family talk about values and traditions that are important to you.
PJ Library Ulster also offers activities for your family — because you’ve got to get out of the house and meet new people sometimes.
The Jewish Federation of Ulster County partners with the Harold Greenspoon Foundation to bring Jewish books to over 150 families in Ulster County. There’s no cost to enroll. Each local PJ Library subscription is a gift f rom The Jewish Federation of Ulster County.
PJ Library welcomes all Jewish families, whatever your background, knowledge, or family make-up, or observance may be.
Families raising children from birth until 9 years old with Judaism as part of their lives, can enroll in PJ Library HERE.

Sign Up for a PJ Library Neighborhood!
In Ulster County, we have 150 families who are signed up for PJ Library and receive free books with Jewish content for their children each month. One parent told me, “they are a huge resource that align with values of how I want to raise my kids. I use them whenever I need to explain a concept that is difficult to grasp or if a holiday is coming up”.
As amazing as the PJ Library books are, in recent years PJ Library has become more than books. PJ Library is a community of families with shared values who live near each other. Why not create opportunities to meet? Ulster County is vast and spacious. Most families will travel for events and activities 15-30 minutes from their home but not much more . So why not meet the PJ Library families in your own neighborhood?
PJ Library has families who live in neighborhoods closest to 5 areas in Ulster County. These areas are: Woodstock, Kingston, New Paltz, Stoneridge and Wallkill. Each area has its own sign-up page. Find the signup button that matches the area closest to where you live and sign up for our first gathering!
