The PJ Library® program supports Cleveland families on their Jewish journey by sending free Jewish-content books and music on a monthly basis to children ages six months to seven years. A program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, The PJ Library® is generously funded by the Leonard Krieger Fund of the Cleveland Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

Since its first summer of operation in 1907, Camp Wise has grown into a modern, organized residential camping facility that has developed as a leader in the field of Jewish camping, and secured a special place in the hearts of hundreds of thousands of children and teens.
