jBaby Chicago Parent Ambassadors

jBaby Chicago Parent Ambassadors are members of the new parent community. They are excited to meet and welcome new parents, listen and share stories, and connect you to other families in the neighborhood and other opportunities in the Jewish community. Ambassadors are a great resource for neighborhood programs, classes and playgroups as well as current JUF Young Family programs including: PJ Library and JUF Right Start.

Email one of our Parent Ambassadors and take them up on their offer to go out for coffee, or meet up at a play space or park. jBaby Chicago Parent Ambassadors also have jBaby Chicago swag to welcome your new baby or toddler - so be in touch to get yours!
