Read quotes from our participants!

“The JBaby educational workshops were a fantastic way for my husband and I to connected with other new or soon to be parents within the Jewish community in Atlanta as we have much in common and share many of the same questions and concerns. The speakers were excellent and went above and beyond to answer our questions!  In addition, the Jewish tie in with each workshop theme was a great touch. For example, when it comes to nutrition, we are actively trying to make each Shabbat meaningful in a way that works for us and a fun sensory experience for our little baby girl.” -Rebecca Gurevich

“We really enjoyed the JBaby educational workshops–especially since we could attend from home and still learn as a community! I learned SO much from the professionals they had present, especially during the Occupational therapy and starting solids workshops, and it was really helpful for my husband to be in the room and able to tune in as well. The Jewish lens gave these workshop meaning and ritual around them that we could not get anywhere else, and JBaby made it easy to tune out any other overwhelm of what we need to learn as new parents by giving us very distinct workshops as part of a package.” -Rachel Moldovan

“The JBaby educational series was a great way to learn and meet other Jewish families in a similar life stage. We really enjoyed the flexibility to join virtually from home (with our newborn sleeping upstairs!) and it definitely made us feel more prepared for milestones that lie ahead.” -Jenna Chaiken

The Jbaby series has been wonderful for my husband and me! We really enjoyed connecting with other new families each week and learning from some top notch consultants and therapists. The series felt very cohesive and informative. I liked how each session was connected to a concept in Judaism and we left with a tidbit of information we could incorporate into our everyday lives.” -Amy Lee
