Shalom Ya’ll!

Two programs at United Jewish Federation of Tidewater are designed to say ‘welcome’ with a ‘Jewish Southern-hospitality flair.

Shalom Baby is a project that welcomes babies to the Jewish community and Shalom Tidewater welcomes Jewish people moving to the area.

“We would love to know if you or someone you know is new to the Tidewater area or has recently had a baby,” says Ronnie Jacobs Cohen, UJFT donor relations manager. “UJFT and the Simon Family JCC want to make them feel welcome to our Jewish community.”

Nofar Trem, manager of youth and teen experiences, and Cohen are ready to “introduce ourselves, share a welcome basket, and familiarize new comers and new babies with all the wonderful programs, synagogues, and opportunities our Jewish community has to offer,” says Trem.
