Join PJ Library and PJ Our Way in exploring the story behind the Golem through Legos! In Jewish tradition, the golem is an anthropomorphic creature made by magic. There have been many modern interpretations, including the Minecraft game's Iron Golem. Working with Play Well TEKnologies , participants will draw inspiration from Jewish folklore and Minecraft to build their own Lego Golem. And while the kids play, parents are invited to attend Sleep Away Camp 101, a workshop and meet & greet with staff from Chicago area Jewish summer camps.

On December 13th, PJ Gives Back will focus on the theme of Holiday Giving.
