Every month 800 children in Winnipeg receive FREE Jewish books sent directly to their homes by PJ Library.

This family engagement program, is a gift from the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg to families raising Jewish children between the ages of 6 months to 8 years. In addition to expanding the children’s personal libraries, we offer many family programs throughout the year. Families attending these programs are able to meet and get to know new families in the community as well as connect with other Jewish organizations through our many partnered programs.
PJ Goes to BB Camp is a great example of these events and partnership. On Monday August 6th, PJ families spent a day at BB Camp in Lake of the Woods enjoying camp activities while also having an opportunity to meet new families, deepen their connections, and create new friendships. Now in its second year, the program is becoming an annual staple in the PJ calendar, and brought out over 100 people this year.

“We had a terrific day! It was our first time at BB Camp and we absolutely loved the well maintained place, the kindness of the staff, the interesting and various activities and everything else they had to offer. Thank you, PJ Library, for exposing us to such an interesting and fun program, we would have never had a chance to try it without you.” – Irina Krassovitski, PJ Parent
“My husband, our boys and I did the ropes course, canoed, kayaked and even braved the cooler temperatures to play on the water toys in the lake. It was nice to see people whom we haven’t seen in years and make new friends as well. We are grateful to the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, PJ Library and BB Camp for sponsoring what truly was an exciting (electronic-free) day with our kids!” – Candice Tenenbein, PJ Parent [see photos, feel free to caption with their name]
We are already looking forward to welcoming more families at this fun mid-summer event next year – Save the date for Monday August 5th, 2019!
