PJ Library is a FREE program that sends high-quality, age-appropriate Jewish books and music to families each month—with absolutely no strings attached. PJ Library Greater MetroWest is now available to families with children ages 6 months through age 6 living in Essex, Morris, Somerset, Sussex, and Union counties and offers subscriptions to each eligible child in the household. Click here to subscribe.

As always, we have included the most up-to-date information available, but we all know how much it stinks to get the snack bags packed and the kids loaded into the car, only to find out a program is canceled. So do us a favor and confirm all events before schlepping out, OK?
