Chat via Skype with Steve Sheinkin, author of Rabbi Harvey vs. the Wisdom Kid and Rabbi Harvey Rides Again! Attendees should make sure to read one or both books beforehand and come with some questions prepared. SAJFS will have extra copies of the books to give out in the weeks preceding the book club meeting, so Harvey newcomers can get up to speed. We’ll provide dairy lunch for everyone attending.

PJ Our Way is an extension of the much-beloved PJ Library program for kids from 9 to 11 years old! Instead of having a predetermined book sent to them each month, PJOW kids can choose one of several monthly book options, so they can customize the program to their tastes!
In recognition of the developmental stage of kids 9-11, PJOW is a more interactive program than regular PJ Library. For example, kids can write reviews of the books they read and post them at PJOW’s website for their peers all over the country to see. In addition, SAJFS will be organizing a few PJOW events in 2016-2017, tailored to the program’s age group.
Like PJ Library, PJOW is free to families, and PJ Library alumni (children who have aged out of PJ’s 0-8 age range) are highly encouraged to enroll! There’s currently no limit to how many kids the Inland Northwest can include in this program, so we’re very excited to present it to the community!
