The Tennenhouse Marantz Family
Tell us about your family and how you heard about PJ Library!
We are Lauren and Jesse and our 3-year-old son Jack. We heard about PJ Library through Lauren's students at Gray Academy who would often bring PJ Library books to class. We were excited to sign Jack up for PJ Library after he was born.

Tell us about your experiences with PJ Library and how this program (books, events and/or initiatives) has impacted your family.
PJ Library has been a wonderful resource for our family. Jack loves getting his own mail every month and discovering new books. During the pandemic, we wondered how we could connect Jack to Jewish culture and celebrations. We were so happy when PJ Library started putting together activities for the holidays that we could do at home. Jack loved opening his bag of goodies and exploring all of the items and activities. This helped us open up conversations with Jack about all the special things we can do for the Jewish holidays. 

What are your child(ren)'s favourite PJ Library books? 
Jack's favourite PJ books are "Is it Sukkot Yet?" and "Is it Purim Yet?" by Chris Barash. He often asks us when he will receive the other books in that series.
What has been your child's/family's favourite PJ Library program or initiative and why?
Our favourite PJ Library initiative was the take-home Shabbat. Jack loved decorating his own challah cover. We still use Jack's challah cover whenever we have Shabbat at home. Jack enjoyed pretending to light the candles with the sticker flames and he had a lot of fun making the flowers out of beads. That Shabbat was the first time Jack tried grape juice and was able to participate in the prayer over the wine. Jack now has his special "wine" for every Shabbat. While Jack was used to celebrating Shabbat every week this program helped put Jack's contributions to Shabbat front and centre.

Anything else you would like to share?
We are so happy to be a part of the PJ Library program. PJ Library has helped us share our love of books and our love of Judaism with Jack.
