Shalom Baby

Shalom Baby is brain child of ex South African, Jean Gaylis. It is designed to help San Diego families (affiliated, non-affiliated, and interfaith) celebrate the arrival of their Jewish newborns and welcome them to the San Diego Jewish Community through: gift baskets, play groups, social events, holiday celebrations, and resource guides.

This very successful outreach program has now expanded to meet new parents’ needs by offering: infant massage tutorials, musical gatherings, baby book clubs, sleep solutions classes, and more.
