Read quotes from our participants!

“JBaby was a great experience. Not only did it give me a reason to leave the house (no easy feat for a new mother!), but it also gave me an outlet to relate to other moms going through the same challenges and joys as I was. I loved learning new information and tips from our speakers, and I truly looked forward to every JBaby session. I would definitely recommend all moms try it out!” – Cari Goldberg

“I am so grateful for the community and support I found through Jbaby. The experts were a wealth of knowledge and information, helping me better understand and support my child. It helped me connect to other moms during a time that can often feel isolating.” -Jill Wasilewsky

“The first few months of raising a newborn can be very isolating. The JBaby small group came at such a great time for me (and my daughter). It gave us a place to socialize each week, and a place for me to connect with other women going through the same stage of life. Meeting other Jewish moms was especially helpful because it gave us more common ground and will be useful as we all navigate how to raise our kids in the Jewish tradition, what preschools or synagogues to join, etc. I’ve made friends from the group, and have already met two of the moms for walks. Since I don’t know too many women who are home and not working right now, it has been so wonderful to meet other moms that can meet up with for lunch, walks, playdates, etc. I’ve already joined the next JBaby small group because we had such a great experience! We also loved the presenters. I learned a lot, and I think my daughter will enjoy the experience more and more as she gets older.” -Lauren (Marx) Doody

“JBaby was an amazing way to connect with other Jewish parents who are going through the same phase of life. I really enjoyed the special guests they brought in to help facilitate the conversations, but above all I enjoyed the people I met through this experience.” -Ronnie Kess
