PJ Library sends high quality, age-appropriate Jewish children’s books and music, as well as parenting resources, each month at no charge to the family. The cost of each subscription is shared by The Harold Grinspoon Foundation and the Federation. Today in Kansas City, 960 children, representing about 650 families, receive free books each month.

  • Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company: "Trains"

    "Trains," choreographed by Mary Pat Henry in 2006 for Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company with music by Steve Reich, is a multi media work about society before and after World War II and the devastation of the Holocaust. Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company will re-stage Trains to be presented at White Recital Hall on the campus of UMKC, including two public performances and one youth performance.
