Jewish book program connects grandparents with their grandchildren

We know it’s been tough for grandparents to see their grandchildren. Nursing homes didn’t allow visitors for months, and families kept safety precautions in place. But a free national book program with a religious missing is now bridging the gap.

The PJ Library program focuses on Jewish heritage and culture. It ships free books to grandparents and their grandchildren so they can stay in touch.

It helped a grandmother in West Palm Beach stay connected.

“I said let’s open it, and she got hers,” Donna Brovender said. “And we opened up simultaneously, and we had the same book. So we started to read the book together.”

Anyone interested in becoming involved can visit the PJ Library website.
