Jewish Expectant Parent Workshop

This class has transitioned to a virtual live conference platform until further notice as we continue to evaluate and manage the health and safety of our patients and visitors.

What You'll Learn

This unique parenthood preparation class is designed to educate new parents from across the spectrum of Jewish life about the critical questions they'll face bringing a child into the world. To learn more about this workshop, check out this Time Healthland article and the Jewish Expectant Parent Workshop brochure.

This is an opportunity to learn from knowledgeable rabbis and educators—male and female—from Orthodox, Conservative and Reform denominations. Here are some of the topics the class covers:

  • Naming traditions
  • Baby ceremonies
  • Making your pregnancy special
  • Creating a safe space to explore how your family will change
