Welcoming a child into your family is often a kind of turning point for new parents in relation to their own values and their own identity. Many prospective parents get in touch when they want to discuss big Jewish questions such as, ‘will by child be considered to be a Jew if the mother or father is not Jewish?’ and ‘what about circumcision?’
Our spitirtual leader is available to members and non-members for discussion and information at this point. Kehillah North London follows principles laid out by Liberal Judaism and its Beit Din, and we will explain these so that you can make an informed decision about your child’s Jewish status and upbringing in the Jewish community.
As becoming a parent is often the time for putting down roots and making local friends, we could also put you in touch with our members with babies in your immediate neighbourhood.
Our crèche is a great place to bring babies, from birth onwards, and many new parents spend the morning at crèche getting to know others in our community. You are welcome to breast feed during all Kehillah activities and religious services.
