jkidphilly connects families raising young Jewish children to each other, resources, and happenings around the Greater Philadelphia Jewish community. jkidphilly includes:
Programs around the Greater Philadelphia area for holidays, mitzvah projects, playdates, parents’ and caregivers’ nights out, and more!
Thanks to a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, we are able to provide accommodations for any child or family member with a disability to attend jkidphilly events. If you need an accommodation such as an ASL interpreter, a sensory toolbox, or even behavior support for your child, or if you have questions about the accessibility of any program or venue, please note so on our form or contact us. In most cases, our staff will need two weeks’ notice to provide accommodations, but we will do our best to meet your needs on any timeframe.
Resources for your family to use about holidays, Israel, Jewish values, and more.
Free Jewish-content books and music for children from age six months to eight years living in the Greater Philadelphia area.
PJ Our Way Free Jewish-content books and music for children from age 8.5 to 11 years living in the Greater Philadelphia area. Children get to select their books each month and leave reviews online.

jkidphilly filled a void in my life that I have had since I was young.
I have never had close Jewish friends since I did not grow up in an area with many Jews. Now that I am older it’s amazing to me how many Jewish people live in my community. I have many new friends that have kids the same age as my son and it’s exciting to know that he will have something in his life that was always lacking in mine until now
