Summer Camps

Shalom Baby

Get Connected with Shalom Baby!

Maybe your family has recently grown, or your friends are just about to welcome a little one into their lives. Shalom Baby welcomes parents, their newborns and newly adopted children into the Northern Virginia Jewish community. Shalom Baby families are also invited to our free, monthly Shalom Baby play dates. This is a wonderful way for you to meet new people, make new friends and learn about your Jewish community and the resources available to you.

Please contact Jennifer DeAngelis, Community Engagement Coordinator, at, 703.537.3045 to register. For additional resources visit:

Shalom Baby families become part of Growing Jewish Families, a large network of families raising Jewish children in Northern Virginia. If you know someone who is expecting a child, please let Sam Brown know so we can officially welcome them into the Jewish community and invite them to be part of the Shalom Baby family.
