Jewish Expectant Parent Workshop


Cedars-Sinai has developed a unique Jewish Expectant Parent Workshop to educate new parents from across the spectrum of Jewish life about the critical questions they will face in bringing a child into the world. It’s not a childbirth preparation class. It’s a parenthood preparation class.

Over the course of a three-hour, one-time session led by knowledgeable rabbis and educators (male and female, from Orthodox to Reform denominations), you’ll have an opportunity to learn and ask questions about naming traditions, baby ceremonies, making one’s pregnancy special, creating a safe space to explore the idea of how your family will change and much more.
