A PJ Family’s Story

“My son and I have LOVED the books we’ve received. The art and stories are lovely and oh-so-human! We’re Sephardim and I was worried that the books would be ‘too Ashkenazi’ in their perspective. But they’re not. They’re universal. The important contribution they make to our lives lies in their ability to stimulate conversation between my son and I about being Jews, being human, being observers, being in the world with others. What an amazing gift! So, thank you. Thank you!”
