"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 begining 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!
