PJ Library is a gift from the Tucson J, and is made possible by the Einstein-Sim, Langer, Loebl, Margolis, Rosenzweig, and Sharpe families, with support from Jewish Philanthropies of Southern Arizona, in partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
PJ Library sends free, award-winning books that celebrate Jewish values and culture to families with children from birth through 12 years old.
