Shalom Baby: Welcoming Babies and their Parents to Riverdale
Shalom Baby is an outreach program designed to welcome young families and their new babies to the Y and the Riverdale Jewish community. By extending a hand of friendship to families who have recently experienced the birth or adoption of a child, the program invites your family to become an integral part of the Riverdale community. A welcoming phone call from the Y's Family and Parenting Center begins the process.
The Riverdale YM-YWHA is committed to the ideas of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world) as part of our mission statement to provide for our neighbors. Join us in our mitzvah projects! Collection bins are in the Y lobby.
