PJ LIBRARY, the global Jewish book program, is launching a streaming music service. In addition to the free books that PJ Library sends to more than 180,000 children in the United States and Canada each month, children and families will now be able to listen to the best in Jewish kids’ music, for free. The new service, PJ Library Radio, can be streamed at pjlibraryradio.com, the PJ Library Radio app (available for download on iTunes or from the Google Play store), or TuneIn Radio (on Sonos, Xbox, and Roku).
PJ Library mails CDs to subscriber families each December.
“We have it built into our organizational culture to be critical, thoughtful, and always innovative,” said Winnie Sandler Grinspoon, president of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. “Why are we putting Jewish music in your laptop, phone, and Tablet? Because wherever parents find it easiest to access Jewish content, that is where PJ Library wants to be.”
A collaboration between the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and Jewish World Productions, the launch of PJ Library Radio will kick off a three-year transition from CDs to streaming music. In addition, the PJ Library Radio website will feature interactive music videos, on-demand music, and featured kid musicians.
