Dear PJ Library Families,
October is a month ripe with Jewish celebration and stories. The harvest festival of Sukkot starts on the evening of Oct. 8 and culminates in the holiday of Simchat Torah.
As you and your family read PJ Library books together this month, we hope you feel a sense of accomplishment by the story's end. In addition, we hope you take pleasure in the telling (and retelling) your family's own personal tales.
