My Baby and Me is based at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh’s Family Place in Squirrel Hill. The Family Place is a warm, nurturing and safe environment where families with young children come daily to relax, participate in programs, socialize with other families and have their children play in the secure play-space. This is a place where you can feel cared for and supported during the most important stages of your child and family’s development.

Passover Through Art, Jewish Values and Loving Kindness
Passover Through Art, Jewish Values and Loving Kindness

Join Rabbi Ron Symons and Melissa Hiller from the JCC PGH Center for Loving Kindness in a dynamic exploration of Passover art, Jewish values and loving kindness.  In this celebratory season, when many of us are accustomed to sitting at large tables with family, friends, food and tradition, this year’s Passover Seder experience will be more quiet for all of us.  That being said, just as the charoset of slavery is sweet, so too can our seders in the midst of Coronavirus be joyous.

Our conversations bring us together in communal exploration and kindness and might serve as conversation starters for your Passover table.
