A young child turns and faces the camera while two adults sit next to her.

Educators and parents across movements will identify best practices for making Jewish stories come to life in order to live the values inherent in them. Families are the backbone of Jewish life. Torah teaches that families are varied in makeup and none are perfect, yet we dedicate ourselves to the covenantal promise to care for and respect one another. Four children’s books, curricula and online resources will be sent to you through a generous scholarship of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s PJ Goes to School. The books that will be provided are Oy, Vey! Life in a Shoe; Rebecca’s Journey Home; Chicken Soup, Chicken Soup; Mrs. Katz and Tush.
