Israeli Arab children at a school in Baqa al-Gharbiyye reading books from the Lantern Library, a spinoff of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s PJ Library. The Massachusetts-based Harold Grinspoon Foundation last month launched Maktabat al-Fanoos, Arabic for Lantern Library, which provides Arabic children’s books to Arab Israeli children in kindergarten and pre-K. The program, funded in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Education (which is paying approximately 75 percent) and the San Diego-based Price Family Charitable Fund will give 45,000 children monthly books “based on universal values,” according to a press release issued by the Grinspoon Foundation. Matkabat al-Fanoos comes four years after the Grinspoon Foundation launched Sifriyat Pijama, PJ Library’s “sister program” distributing Hebrew-language books for Israeli Jews. What are two American Jewish foundations — Price was established by Sol Price, the son of Russian Jewish immigrants — doing distributing Arabic books? Branching out into the Arab community “seemed the logical and right thing to do, in the sense that the Arab population needs books, too. One challenge, however, is the dearth of Arabic children’s books available to the program, a combination of the turmoil in the Arab world limiting its children’s literary scene and “there not being relations [between Israel and] most of the Arab world that would allow for free trade of books,” Vromen explained. A number of Arab publishers have refused to sell reprint rights to the Israeli publishers that create special imprints of the books, with parents’ guides, for the program.


PJ Library has influenced the American Jewish children’s book-publishing industry, committing to use manuscripts if published and spurring publishers to bring back out-of-print books.
Given the limited selection of Arabic books on the Israeli market, Vromen says it may “play a similar role in Arabic literature,” encouraging not just free trade but the emergence of more Arab Israeli authors.
SPONSORED: "Why Be Jewish?" Edgar Bronfman's clarion call to a generation of secular, disaffected and unaffiliated Jews. It was a hysterical one-hour and 50-minute ride that had a terrific cast and a superior screenplay. We’re The Millers focuses on drug dealer David Clark (Jason Sudeikis) who must pick up a massive shipment of weed for his angry boss Brad Gurdinger (Ed Helms) in Mexico.
However, once they receive the massive shipment…the quartet of misfits start to evolve from a dysfunctional family to an actual unit that cares for each other. The We’re the Millers casting ensemble was one of the major successes of the film.  Sudeikis, Aniston, Roberts and Poulter had great chemistry together and looked like the modern-day hybrid between the Bunkers, Osbournes and the Simpsons.
In addition to the four leading actors, the comedy also features incredible supporting players including Helms, Tomer Sisley (who plays a fearsome Mexican drug lord) and scene-stealers Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn, who play a Flanders-esque couple Don and Edie Fitzgerald.

It’s in the interest of the State of Israel, says Galina Vromen, director of the Grinspoon Foundation’s Israel operations. And other American Jewish foundations, as well as federations, have donated money for social service programs in the Israeli Arab sector. It has also pushed Hebrew-language publishers to produce more books that can serve its diverse population of both religious and secular Jews.
