Kesher: New Parents

Nothing gets us more pumped-up than the birth of a new baby! As soon as we learn of a birth in the Kesher family, we begin making arrangements to celebrate and assist the family.

Our programming for Synagogue Members includes:

1. A "Welcome Home New Mother" Shabbat meal from Eighteen Restaurant delivered on the baby’s first Shabbat at home,

2. Arranging a volunteer Meal Train program for family and friends to send additional meals,

3. Coordinating an Aliyah in the Main Synagogue for the father. 

4. And if requested, information on hosting a Bris.

The Synagogue building is also designed to help you care for your babies:

There is comfortable Nursing Mother’s Lounge (designed by Kesher member and accomplished decorator Jennifer Agus) located in the spacious anteroom of the Lower Level Women's Room;

We have 5 brand new “Koala” brand Baby Changing Stations in Lower Level, Lobby, and Second Floor men's and women's restrooms.

When you have good news to share, please contact KJ Administrator Riva Alper at or 212-774-5670. We look forward to sharing in your simcha!
