Our Events

jBaby Chicago Family Events

jBaby family events are for the entire family (yes, grandparents too!) Throughout the year celebrate holidays with us at an Ultimate Playdate, make a new friend at Bagels in the Park or enjoy a tot-sized concert with one of our favorite local musicians. Join us at kid-friendly locations or sometimes from the comfort of your couch.

JUF Young Families programming is enriched by the diversity of our participants. We know each family is unique and all are welcome. Please email us at youngfamilies@juf.org if you have any questions or if you require any accommodations to make our programming accessible and welcoming to your family.
