In an effort to strengthen the identities of Jewish families and their relationship to Manhattan’s Jewish community, The PJ Library® recently launched its international award-winning program on the Upper West Side and Lower Manhattan. Within a month, nearly a thousand signed up to receive the program’s free books to read at bedtime with their children.

To celebrate the program’s arrival in New York, “Seinfeld” actor and veteran comedian Jerry Stiller plans to read books from The PJ Library to preschool and elementary children at the JCC Manhattan on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 3 p.m.

Stiller’s wife and fellow comedian, Anne Meara, plans to join him and will also read to the kids.
