Morristown Jewish Center

Shalom Babies

It is our observation, supported by anecdotal evidence, that many families move to Morris County without the benefit of support – people, family or friends who can help familiarize them with our community. Very often parents with young children feel isolated and without opportunities to meet and share the challenges young children provide. To answer these needs, we’ve created a program to bring together Jewish children and their
parents with others who are similarly suited.

Shalom Babies meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-10:30 when school is in session. It is a teacher led, informal program that uses a circle time format with activities including music, puppet play and songs to promote child based interactions. Following our circle activities, there is an opportunity for parents to schmooze while the children move around freely, exploring our age appropriate toys and develop basic social skills. The children experience a very smooth natural progression from this class to our new 2’s or 2’s program. This FREE program open to MJCBY and non-MJCBY members.
