The Jeff Astor Foundation has sponsored SHALOM BABY BAGS since 2017 for families with new babies. These welcome bags include a baby book, a Jewish Baby Network bib, a Shabbat kit including grape juice and Shabbat candles, Jewish music and more. The Shalom Baby Bags are free for expecting parents and families with little ones from 0-36 months.

The Jewish Baby Network, part of Jewish, Family and Children’s Services, connects new families to each other and to the larger Jewish community and provides resources, programs, guidance and education on how to bring the beauty of Judaism into a new family’s life.
