Calgary Jewish Federation is thrilled to welcome you and your baby as you embark on this wonderful journey of Jewish parenthood. May your child bring you much naches (great pride), immense joy, and fill your heart with love.


By extending a hand of friendship to families who have recently welcomed a baby, we invite your family to become an integral part of Shalom Baby and Calgary’s Jewish community. We connect young families, helping them build social connections and find support. Each new life in the Jewish community is welcomed and celebrated with a free Shalom Baby Gift Bag filled with valuable information, community resources, and gifts for the baby.


If you have not already received a Shalom Baby Gift Bag, please email Sydney Truax or call 403-537-8592.
