Wishing PJ Library Families and Friends a Healthy, Happy and Sweet New Year!

 

Dear PJ Library Families,

 

The High Holiday season is almost upon us, with all its delicious traditions: apples dipped in honey, round raisin Challah, and unusual fruits (see below). Rosh Hashanah marks the start of the New Year and, as such, is an opportune time to reflect upon the events of the past year and our hopes for the coming one.

We wish you a year full of sweetness, good health, quality family time, and great Jewish stories. 

 

Shanah Tovah!

PJ Library/Shalom Baby Coordinator
