What does PJ stand for?
Pajamas! We know those special times of reading, dancing, and singing together happen when your children are wearing their pajamas.

Whether your child is interested in visiting Israel, helping Israeli communities or simply in knowing more about what Israel has to offer, there's much to be gained by helping your kids learn as much as they can about Israel at an early age.
The Jewish Federation recently engaged in a two-year study of the greater Seattle area’s needs in regards to early childhood Jewish education. Led by volunteers and educators--and involving hundreds of members and teachers in the community—we developed a long-range plan to improve early childhood Jewish education in our community. This strategic study was one of the first in the nation for a Jewish community.
The Jewish Federation is committed to ensuring a strong Jewish future. Early childhood activities and exposure is critical to ensuring the next generations grow up with a connection to Judaism.
How do we instill Jewish values and commitment in future generations?
Studies have shown that the earlier children are exposed to Jewish themes and immersed in a Jewish environment, the stronger their Jewish identity. The more parents participate in the Jewish upbringing of their children, the more these children build their own Jewish families when they grow up.
