Families with Young Children

Welcoming Your Family into Ours

Every family is unique, and we welcome each one warmly and fully into our community. We are here to be your partner and a resource for life cycle events, developmental milestones, and all things Jewish life. We also love to facilitate connections and offer so many opportunities for you to meet other families and create your own special community within Washington Hebrew Congregation. If you would like to explore additional entry points for engaging, or just learn more about our community, please contact Jen Millstone, our Director of Member Engagement.

Additional Programs for Families with Young Children

WHC’s Pregnancy Group

Join Rabbi Fischel for conversations about the wonders, awe, frustrations, and ridiculousness of pregnancy. Our discussions will be framed in a Jewish light, and our focus will be on building a community of soon-to-be moms who can depend on each other for years to come.

This program costs $18 for WHC members; $36 for non-members and will include dinner each week.

Our next Pregnancy Group will begin in mid-May 2024.

The group will meet on Zoom for the first three weeks and then include three opportunities to meet in person.


WHC’s New Moms’ Group

Having a new baby is an incredible miracle and simcha (joy!)…and it brings with it big changes and challenges!

Join Stephanie Tankel, WHC’s Director of Lifelong Learning, and mom of three, for an opportunity to share, vent, celebrate, and more.

This program costs $36 for WHC members, $50 for non-members.

Our next New Moms’ Group will meet on Mondays in June at 11:00 am.


FIT4Mom Stroller Strides

This all-levels total-body conditioning workout is designed for caregivers with kids in tow. Each 60-minute workout consists of strength training, cardio, and core restoration, all while entertaining the little ones with songs, activities, and fun! Your instructor is trained to meet you where you are mentally and physically and create space for caregivers to build community.

Mondays at 9:30 am at Temple



Held twice each month, these evenings begin with an engaging, interactive Tot Shabbat service, which lasts about a half-hour and teaches Jewish prayers, traditions, and rituals through songs, stories, and art projects.

Following the service, stick around for a lovely dinner.
