Sababa Sprouts

Our new Sababa Sprouts group is designed for our Mini Mensch graduates, those who are 1 and 2 years old (or there about!). Come together with your favorite adult for a special class with a different Jewish theme each month. Between sessions, participate in a special WhatsApp group and meetup for informal playdates, coffee dates and more! For more info, email sababasprouts@jccnnj.org.

SABABA SPROUTS: A new monthly meetup for parents with their 12 to 24-month-olds (or thereabout). “Sababa” means “cool” or “chill” in Hebrew. Let’s watch our children sprout as they grow among this cool group of friends.

Each meetup will include a Jewish-themed craft, snacks, storytime, and socialization all led by a certified early childhood educator.

The program will also include a private WhatsApp group for parents of this age child with spontaneous meetups in parks and coffee shops throughout the year.
