Shalom Baby

Welcoming the newest members of our community

Are you, or is someone you know, adding a new member to the family? Let us know so we can personally send a Shalom Baby Gift Bag! The Jewish Federation of Madison's Shalom Baby program welcomes new or soon-to-be parents and their young children (by birth or adoption) to our local Jewish community. Shalom Baby is also a wonderful way to help new parents find support and build social connections during this particular time in their lives.

We've filled the Shalom Baby Gift Bags with special gifts, including Jewish Holiday Milestone Stickers, a bib, a onesie, a tzedakah box, and more. The gift bag also contains lots of useful information about our community, including our programs and services for children and young families, PJ Library, Madison's Jewish congregations, and a Guidebook to Jewish Wisconsin. Much of this information is also available online in our Community Directory.

Contact Adina Gasser, Director of Engagement and Leadership, at or (608) 442-4077 to get connected, and so we can welcome your new little one with a Shalom Baby Gift Bag.
