Shalom Baby

Shalom Baby is designed to welcome Jewish babies to St. Louis and to the Jewish community. By extending a hand of friendship to families who have recently experienced the birth or adoption of a child, your family is invited to become an integral part of the St. Louis Jewish Community.


The Shalom Baby program has long been regarded as one of the premier infant outreach programs in the country. Through this program, many families are introduced to the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, the Jewish Community Center, congregations and other Jewish organizations and are connected to areas of interest for their family.

Shalom Baby relies on the community to provide names of Jewish families who have recently experienced the birth or adoption of a new baby. A free home visit is arranged and each family receives a goody bag filled with donated items from various Jewish organizations, as well as a wealth of helpful information and resources for young families.

Please support our efforts in continuing to reach as many new Jewish families as possible, by providing their names and contact information to Jennifer Baer by emailing or by calling 314-442-3867. Those interested can also sign up for a visit by clicking here.

This program is partially funded by the Lubin-Green Foundation, a supporting foundation of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis.
