Let’s Parent Together
Consider the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades your partner in your parenting journey! We are here for you from pregnancy through school-age, providing you resources and a warm and welcoming community of parents and caregivers.
Our community is exactly what you need to enjoy the precious journey of parenting. With a variety of parenting classes and resources, as well as opportunities to get out of the house to socialize, we've got your needs covered.
Throughout the year, we offer music classes and meetups, welcoming to children of all abilities, and parents and caregivers of all forms. We guarantee that both you and your little ones will meet friends for life!
Welcome to the World
Do you have a friend, family member or neighbor who just had a baby? Did you just have a baby? Let us know! We’d love to welcome the little bundle of joy to the community with a special gift! Our special Welcome to the World gift boxes include a baby gift and valuable gift certificates for free classes for parent and baby, including CPR and Tot Shabbat! Please Contact us and provide us with your information, and we’ll send out a beautiful box of goodies to say Mazel Tov (Congratulations)!
Ages 6 months to 5.5 years
Receive a Free Treasury of Children’s Books & Music! Join a growing global community of “PJ families” raising Jewish children who use books and music to nurture a strong Jewish identity. Each month, an age-appropriate, beautifully-illustrated book or a catchy music CD will arrive in the mail that will explore Jewish themes ranging from celebrating Shabbat to exploring Jewish history, values and traditions. Contact us to get on the list. A limited number of subscriptions are available!
Babies, Books, and Bubbles Outside!
Community is essential both for our little ones and their parents and caregivers, always and especially now.

Namaste, Let’s Play!
Let’s join together for a fun-filled outdoors yoga and play adventure. Partner with your toddler (ages 15-36 months) as we wiggle like caterpillars, “moo” in cow pose, and “row row row row” while in boat pose! We will bend, stretch, move, sing and use our imaginations together! This outdoors and physically distanced program is strictly limited to 6 toddler/parent/caregivers dyads.
