PJ Library Set to Enhance Passover Celebration with Free Resources and Activities

This Passover, from the evening of April 22 to April 30, PJ Library, a key resource for Jewish families in North America, is offering an array of free books, activities, recipes, and educational resources. The initiative aims to support families in celebrating the Passover holiday, which commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery over 3,300 years ago.

PJ Library’s Passover Hub provides families with kid-friendly methods to share the Passover story, along with downloadable activities to engage children during the seder. The hub also features seasonal recipes, book lists, and instructional videos to enhance the holiday experience.

Key resources include a Passover FAQ for Kids, addressing common questions with accessible explanations, Passover Printables for creative fun, and the “Who Knows About Passover” card game for family entertainment.

In addition to storytelling and games, PJ Library introduces Matzah Mania, inviting families to explore three simple matzah recipes. These include a DIY unleavened bread, a matzah grazing board, and several snack options like fire-roasted tomato soup with cheddar matzah crisps and matzah bruschetta.

PJ Library’s partnership with Streit’s brings a unique opportunity, featuring the PJ Library logo on Streit’s Matzos boxes. This collaboration aims to integrate PJ Library stories and activities into family traditions, with subscriptions promoted on every box of Streit’s Matzos.

The organization also offers a downloadable PDF version of “IN EVERY GENERATION: A PJ LIBRARY FAMILY HAGGADAH,” an interactive guide for the Passover seder. This Haggadah is designed to be family-friendly, with videos, songs, and explanations to make the holiday engaging. Paperback versions are available for purchase on Amazon.

Age-specific books are curated for subscribers, with titles like “In Our Teeny Tiny Matzah House” for children aged 3 to 4 and “A Persian Passover” for ages 6 to 7, enriching the holiday experience with culturally relevant stories.

PJ Library, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, has distributed over 50 million books worldwide in its 18-year history, fostering Jewish cultural and historical connections among families. For more info, visit the PJ Library website.
