Through jkidphilly, Jewish Learning Venture engages families raising Jewish children. Across Greater Philadelphia, young children experience Jewish learning, celebrations, and relationships. Through PJ Library subscriptions, low-barrier programs, and Do-it-Yourself resources, families take active steps along their Jewish journeys.

“PJ Library books are the only Jewish children's books we have in our home. We thoroughly enjoy receiving and reading them."
“My family is interested in participating in Jewish events and jkidphilly gives us the needed support to do so and also shows our children fun ways to celebrate and see that what they celebrate is being celebrated around them."
“We ❤ jkid!!"
“Thank you for creating a wonderful, warm space for kids this age!"
“This was our first time having a traditional Shabbat dinner, and the information we received along with the 'supplies' helped me a lot."
“The Berger Network helped us make the connection between the community and our synagogue."
Now in its 4th year, Jewish Learning Venture’s jkidphilly Parent Ambassadors initiative empowers parents to lead programs and build relationships with Jewish families in their neighborhoods.
And in May 2019, we launched the jkidphilly Parent Ambassador Alliance, bringing together visionary leaders to sustain the work of the Parent Ambassador initiative.
