Transforming Young Lives through the PJ Library Program

PJ Library is Jewish family engagement program that gives young children the opportunity to explore the timeless core values of Judaism through books and music. All families raising Jewish Children from age six months through the age of eight years old are welcome to sign up. This program is a gift to you from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, the Jewish Federation of Utah, Congregation Kol Ami and Temple Har Shalom.

Ongoing Programming

We believe that providing monthly social gatherings is an important way to build community. Through our “Women’s Lunch & Learn”, “Girls Night Out”, and “Men’s Night Out” we have provided a mechanism for our community members to join together in the spirit of friendship and camaraderie. In addition to a little Torah Study or listening to great community speakers, our hope is that these gatherings should be rooted in the desire to make new friends and broaden your circle of relationships.

Our Impact in Israel

In Israel Federation funds training and educational programs to break the cycle of poverty, mentoring programs for children at risk, and programs to help new Immigrants integrate successfully. We also mobilize in times of crisis to provide care and support where necessary.
