PJ Library celebrates 10 years in St. Louis; $10k donation match

The family of Michael and Leslie Litwack.

This week, the Jewish Federation of St. Louis is celebrating the 10th anniversary of PJ Library with a #PJPayItForward Campaign. From May 7-12, St. Louis’ founding PJ Library family, Michael and Leslie Litwack, have agreed to match every dollar up to $10,000 raised for the campaign. 

Every month, PJ Library sends free Jewish children’s books to families around the world, including in St. Louis. PJ Library helps parents find the right books to provide their children with Jewish bedtime moments.

A $40 donation can provide a year’s worth of free Jewish books to a child in St. Louis. A $120 donation can cover the cost of PJ Library books and Beyond the Books PJ programming for one child for one year. A $360 gift provides a lifetime subscription of free PJ Library books for one child in the community.

To participate, make a donation at jfedstl.org/events/pj-pay-it-forward and watch it double from May 7-12. Then, reach out to friends and family and tell them you’re participating in #PJPayItForward and ask them to join. Next, post about #PJPayItForward on Facebook and Twitter. All week, Federation will post about PJ Library and share photos and stories of how it has impacted so many people in St. Louis.
