Commission for Jewish Education

Friedman CJE’s Jewish Family Life programs connect families with children in the Palm Beaches to a variety of opportunities for Jewish life and learning. Through our consultation and collaboration with local community partners, we create innovative and meaningful community-wide family engagement programs, teacher curriculum enhancements and events utilizing PJ Library® and PJ Our Way materials and resources.


How We Empower Jewish Family Life:

  • 2,000 children receive PJ Library® and PJ Our Way books in the Palm Beaches each month
  • 97% of families say PJ Library® has increased their confidence to engage with their children regarding Jewish traditions, values and/or customs
  • 77% of families involved with CJE are interested in getting more connected to local Jewish organizations, activities and/or people

“Without CJE, there would be a void. They’ve made it easy for my husband and me to bond with our daughter about Jewish lessons, and when we attend a community event that CJE has told us about and helped plan then I know my daughter is walking out with a life lesson learned.” 

– Julie Marsh, Lake Worth

24,000 free Jewish books were delivered to local young children this year through PJ Library®.
