- JUF Book Buddies makes learning about the Jewish Holidays fun! Join other young families in three locations around the Chicago metro area each month for creative holiday-themed art projects, sing-a-longs and story reading. Events are appropriate for children ages 0-5 years. This year, JUF Book Buddies will take place at bookstores in Vernon Hills, Naperville and Oak Park. There is no cost to attend the programs, but registration is requested.
