Shalom Baby is a special gift bag delivery service designed to help Jewish families in Tidewater celebrate the birth or adoption of their babies and welcome them to the Broad Jewish Community.  Shalom Baby is a program of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater/ Simon Family JCC partnered with Strelitz International Academy and PJ Library.

Approximately 3-6 weeks after your due date or baby’s birth, Carly Glikman, Outreach Manager, will be in contact with you to schedule a time to deliver your bag to you and your new baby at home.

Our Shalom Baby bag is filled with goodies for you and your baby, resources and information about everything Jewish baby in Tidewater! Whether it’s your first child, fourth child, or if you recently adopted a baby - Shalom Baby is for you!
