CAJE St. Louis - Shalom Baby

Shalom Baby is designed to welcome Jewish babies to St. Louis and to the Jewish Community. By extending a hand of friendship to families who have recently experienced the birth or adoption of a child, your family is invited to become an integral part of the St. Louis Jewish Community. Let us introduce you to the Jewish Community Center, the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, congregations and other Jewish organizations.

 

SHALOM BABY COMMUNITY PROGRAM ANNOUNCES NEW COLLABORATION

In an effort to more effectively serve families with young children, effective June 1, 2013, CAJE’s Concierge for Families with Young Children will be assuming primary responsibility for the Shalom Baby Program.  In this new model, Jayne Langsam, the Concierge for Families with Young Children, will be the contact for Shalom Baby visits, website maintenance, and referrals.  CAJE recognizes the value of the volunteers who have previously made the Shalom Baby visits, and will work in tandem with the JCC staff to enhance those relationships. 

The Shalom Baby program has been extending a hand of friendship to families who have recently experienced the birth or adoption of a child for many years and has long been regarded as one of the premier infant outreach programs in the country.  Through this program, many families are introduced to the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, the Jewish Community Center, congregations and other Jewish organizations and are connected to areas of interest for their family.

Shalom Baby relies on the community to provide names of Jewish families who have recently experienced the birth or adoption of a new baby.  A free home visit is arranged and each family receives a goody bag filled with donated items from various Jewish organizations, as well as a wealth of helpful information and resources for young families.  The website shalombabystl.org serves as another helpful source of information for new moms. 

Please support our efforts in continuing to reach as many new Jewish families as possible, by providing their names and contact information to Jayne Langsam at CAJE by e-mailing jlangsam@jfedstl.org or by calling 314-442-3870. Those interested can also sign up for a visit on the program website.

This program is partially funded by the Lubin-Green Foundation.
