For beginning Jewish families

"J-Baby" is a Northern Westchester initiative that brings together families with babies through pre-schoolers to find ways of bringing Judaism into their everyday lives, while making social connections for themselves and their children.

Through regular events, outings, seminars and playdates, families who are just beginning the journey of raising their children and deciding on how to bring Judaism into their home, can meet and find friendships that will last a lifetime!

You can find out more information by joining J-Baby on Meetup.com and/or Facebook - or contact Cathy Deutchman at (914) 741-0333 x25 or email cathy@rosenthaljcc.org
