PJ Shares: Helping Our Community

A PJ Library program geared for families with children (ages 2-8) with intellectual/developmental disabilities.

Give back to the community through this hands-on volunteer experience. PJ Shares will bring together families for fun activities with a big impact as they work together to make mishloach manot (Purim gift) packages, tzedakah boxes, and more. The National Lekotek Center will facilitate sensory storytime and adaptive play. This event is presented in partnership with Encompass, Keshet, Jewish Child and Family Services (JCFS), and JUF’s Tikkun Olam Volunteer (TOV) Network.
