PJ Library Ottawa is an inclusive program for families who want to engage with community and bring Jewish education into their homes.

Since 2011, PJ has provided the gift of free Jewish books and music to thousands of Ottawa children. This is made possible through the generous donations of a local group of inspired donors and the support of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, all of whom want to see the Jewish community continue to thrive. 


Please visit our EVENTS web page to see if there are any special family get-togethers.


Are you a Jewish parent or are you raising a Jewish child?
If you are interested in receiving Jewish books monthly, please contact Emily Litvack for more information.


Help grow the PJ Program!

While the books and music are a free gift, each subscription for a child actually costs the Jewish Federation of Ottawa $67 CDN annually. By donating, you can help us ensure more young Jewish families in Ottawa can access PJ Library books and the program. So we ask that you to “Pay it Forward” and assist us in growing the PJ Program.

If you have any questions about the program or your donation please contact Emily at elitvack@jewishottawa.com

Thank you for your support.
