Earlier in the year we asked families to pay it forward and cover the cost of another child’s subscription – just as their child’s books have been paid for. We were blown away by everyone’s generosity. Over £20,000 was donated from families across the UK, many sending messages of thanks and gratitude about the difference the books were making to each family. Thanks to these donations we were able to release 500 more subscriptions, which means we will be reaching 5,000 children and their families before the end of 2017. Thank you to everyone who took the time and money to pay it forward helping us bring PJ Library to hundreds more Jewish families. We will leave you with some of our favourite photos and messages:

Thank you for another year of Jewish inspiration through these wonderful books. I am paying it forward for other families to enjoy and find Jewish wisdom in these beautiful stories too.

We hope that children around the world will be able to enjoy the introduction to Jewish/Israeli life that our children were so fortunate to enjoy.

Opening our PJ Library deliveries is a highlight of every month for my children. We have a special shelf for the books, and they've become integral parts of the way we talk about and celebrate key holidays. Thank you for enriching our family life!
