Yesterday morning Emunah had the opportunity to host the philanthropist and entrepreneur Harold Grinspoon, founder and funder of PJ Library/ Sifriyat Pijama.
Harold and the Grinspoon Foundation, have once again made Jewish children, from all over the world have, "people of the book". They have partnered with Emunah in bringing this marvelous initiative the children in our day care centers. In this initial phase, the program will be geared towards 2-3 year olds.
Now, thanks to Sifriyat Pijama and Emunah, children will have beautiful original books at home and many will enjoy the bonding and stimulating experience of being read for the time,.
Two more fun facts... The books are printed in Israel, supporting local industry, and have been laminated using special technology, making them both light and "slobber proof".
While meeting with Liora Minka, Maya Vazana, director of Early Childhood Education and Shlomo Kessel at Beit Emunah, Harold Grinspoon expressed his satisfaction with this partnership and agreed to look for additional avenues for cooperation.
