LOOKING FOR MORE PASSOVER INFORMATION AND ACTIVITIES?
PJ Library has great suggestions. If you are not already familiar with it, PJ Library is a “Jewish Family Engagement Program” that provides useful educational resources for Jewish families “to explore the timeless core values of Judaism through books and music.” It is free to participate, and children typically receive one book or CD each month. In San Antonio, through partnerships with multiple Jewish organizations and agencies, all families raising Jewish children ages six months to seven years are eligible to participate.
