Meet Our Ambassadors


Come play with jBaby Chicago! From music and art classes to Hebrew immersion playgroups to an expectant parent dinner series, jBaby classes partner with local Jewish organizations to offer something unique for families. Playgroups allow you to meet other parents raising Jewish children in a low-key social setting in your own neighborhood or suburb. Choose the appropriate playgroup based on your child's age.
