Hear what parents have to say:


“The Federation family programs gave me and my kids an easy-going way to connect with others in the Howard County Jewish community.” 


“We love Mitzvah Mornings!  It gives my kids the ability to interact with seniors and gives the older adults in our community a chance to interact with the littlest ones in the Jewish community!”
