Tell us about your family; how did you hear about the PJ Library?
We came from Israel 5 years ago to Winnipeg. We are a family of five: Michael, Dina, Linda, Melissa & Steven. In one of the PJ Library events we signed up to get books. We are delighted to have them ever since, as it adds so much joy to our Jewish life.
Tell us about your experiences with PJ Library and how this program (books and events) have impacted your family.
PJ Library events & books are the best combination to provide the awareness, knowledge & importance of preserving Jewish traditions. We find the programs very attractive & it contributes a lot to our children. I'm proud to be part of the PJ parent committee.
What are your children's favorite PJ books?
Linda likes the book "Goldie's Purim" because it explains the story about Purim, especially queen Esther & her braveness.Melissa likes the book "Everybody says Shalom" - it's an easy to read book with paintings of places & food in Israel.
What has been your child's favorite PJ Library program and why?
It’s really hard to say what is the favorite program… The recent Matzah baking was a great program as kids were explained on the process and ingredients, videos and finally to make their own Matzah. We love the summer picnic event, lots of activities and children get to meet their friends.
Anything else you’d like us to know?
PJ programs are always welcoming and fun. We are thankful to have such a warm & supportive community.
