PJ Our Way:   A program of the Jewish Federation of Central Mass in partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.


What is PJ Our Way?

PJ Our Way is the newest chapter of PJ Library that offers the gift of exceptional books with Jewish themes to kids ages 8½-12 – books that they choose themselves!  Sign up at www.pjourway.org

Monthly Choice

Every month, from the 1st – 10th, kids visit this website to choose a book from a selection of four high-quality titles that have been reviewed by a panel of PJ educators, parents, and kids. That's 12 free books a year! To make the choice easier, every title offered comes with a synopsis and author bios, ratings and reviews, and video trailers. Kids can also take polls and quizzes, participate in monthly interviews and challenges, and comment on blog posts.

Parent Input

On the Parent Blog, parents are invited to read about each book and find suggestions for family conversations. These blog posts give parents tools to help children make book choices that are appropriate for them.

A Safe Website

The PJ Our Way website is a safe place where kids can choose books, write reviews, and share ideas with others from around the country. All content on the website is moderated by PJ educators.

Events / Harold N Cotton PJ Our Way Junior Leadership of Central Mass

Just like PJ Library, PJ Our Way provides opportunity to connect and build community between our “tweens” and their families.  Additionally, kids are invited to be part of  a leadership team to help in the planning of events and to build leadership skills.  With events throughout the year, whether or not you are on the leadership team, there are many ways to get involved and connected with new friends.
