Shalom Baby


Shalom Baby is designed to help Jewish families in the Raleigh-Cary area celebrate the birth or adoption of their babies and welcome them to the Jewish Community through a delivery of a special Shalom Baby gift bag. Shalom Baby is a program of Jewish Family Services and the Jewish Community Center.

The Raleigh-Cary JCC utilizes JFS volunteers to deliver goods/information for this program. As such, recipients’ contact information must be provided to the volunteer(s). All volunteers for these services go through a background check by an outside company, and are trained by our volunteer coordinator.

Approximately 2-3 weeks after your due date or baby’s birth, a JFS volunteer will reach out to you to schedule a time to deliver your bag to you and your new baby at home. (Interested in being a JFS volunteer? sign up here)

Our Shalom Baby bag is filled with goodies for you and your baby, resources and information about JFS, JCC, PJ Library, area synagogues and preschools and much more! Whether it’s your first child, your fourth, or if you recently adopted a baby- Shalom Baby is for you! Please register below or contact JFS at 919-676-2200 or the JCC at 919-676-6170.
