Our Events

jBaby Classes, Playgroups & Meet Ups

Come play with jBaby Chicago! From music to yoga to an expectant parent series, jBaby classes partner with local Jewish organizations to offer something unique for families. Or, join a weekly playgroup to connect with other jBaby families. These social groups are facilitated by our jBaby Parent Ambassadors and are offered in person and virtually. Meet Ups are one-time events that include play dates, crafts and volunteer opportunities. Find one happening near you and one that works best for you and your family!

JUF Young Families programming is enriched by the diversity of our participants. We know each family is unique and all are welcome. Please email us at youngfamilies@juf.org if you have any questions or if you require any accommodations to make our programming accessible and welcoming to your family.
