Connecting the Expecting

Connecting the Expecting is Back This Summer!

Following 14 very successful groups and 120+ babies, Anshe Emet is again seeking participants for the next cohort for “CONNECTING THE EXPECTING”!  Expectant parents at similar stages of life will gather to socialize, share resources and discuss issues pertaining to being pregnant and preparing for parenthood. This group is open to expectant single moms and couples (LGBT couples welcome) who are expecting the birth or adoption of their first baby, in which at least one member of the couple is Jewish. Each group will have a Shabbat dinner to get to know one another and meet four times for dinner and programs.

Each session will include a guest speaker and topics will include newborn basics, adjusting to new roles as parents, Jewish baby rituals and must have baby products.

Next cohort starting soon. Check back for more details.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact jBaby Chicago at 312.357.4907/ Or contact Amy Karp at Anshe Emet Synagogue at

Cost is $50 per couple. 
This program is made possible by a grant from jBaby Chicago, a program of the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago. *LGBT couples welcome!
