Sholom Baby

Sholom Baby

For expectant parents and for children 0–12 months

Sholom Baby connects young families who anticipate or have recently experienced the birth or adoption of a child (newborn through 12 months of age) with Congregation Rodeph Sholom and the greater Jewish community, assisting in supporting and building social connections.

When you sign up for Sholom Baby, you will receive a gift bag filled with fun and helpful gifts as well as information on parenting, Jewish resources for families, a gift from PJ Library, a Sholom Sprouts onesie and more!

Let us know if you’ve recently had a baby so we can welcome you and your child with this special gift!

New Moms Group

For children 0 – 16 weeks

Led by Rabbi Juliana Karol and Hannah Lavan, LMSW, this group will meet weekly to discuss what is relevant to you—recovery from childbirth, bottle- and breastfeeding, and the anxieties and pleasures of these early days during this unsettling time. Our conversation is grounded in Jewish values, but is open to all. Enjoy some social time and a safe space to discuss new motherhood. Let’s navigate this journey together.

Future dates will be announced soon.
