Mothers of the PJ Library are invited to participate in Connections, a free book group that provides mothers with opportunities to meet, socialize and engage in lively and rich discussions about Jewish identity and Jewish family life. The program is free and includes two books and desserts. Connections is offered at Panera Bread in Swampscott on Monday, March 11; Hardcover Restaurant in Danvers on Monday, March 4; and Temple Ahavat Achim in Gloucester on Wednesday, March 13. Groups meet from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Connections is open to mothers who have children currently or formerly enrolled in the PJ Library. Connections is a program of the Robert I.

North Shore Players will present “Prairie Lights,” a holiday musical, on Dec. 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9, running Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in the Hogan Regional Center Auditorium, 6 Hathorne Circle, Danvers. “Prairie Lights” tells the story of a Jewish brother and sister who journey west on an Orphan Train in 1905. Arriving with other homeless youths in a tiny Nebraskan town just before the holidays, the siblings are adopted by Wellspring’s only Jewish couple. As Christmas and Hanukkah approach, orphans and residents alike are on a quest to reunite Wellspring after being threatened by a fearful banker.
