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.

Programs for Families with Young Children

WHC’s Pregnancy Group

Wednesdays at 7:30 pm starting May 3 ON ZOOM and will run for 4 weeks.

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 $10 for WHC members; $18 for non-members and will include dinner each week.


WHC’s New Moms’ Group

Stay tuned for details on our next cohort starting later this summer!

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 $18 for WHC members, $36 for non-members.

Tot Shabbat

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.
