Providing New Parents With A Jewish Space To Meet

One strong memory of new motherhood was heading down Broadway for a stroller nap or snapping one of the girls into a Snuggli carrier, and dropping in on a group in the chapel of Ansche Chesed. New moms and a couple of brave dads donned decent socks, took off our shoes and sat around the edge of a big mat. We plopped our babies down in front of us; rolled them around or fed them, and asked the questions new parents ask.

One of the dirty little secrets of Jewish outreach efforts to young people — particularly to college students and those in their 20s — is the use of alcohol to entice them.

The most recent case in point was TribeFest, a five-day gathering sponsored by the Jewish Federations of North America to attract people in the 22-to-45 age range.
