DBJCC Covid-19 Message

The DBJCC, located in the heart of Federal Hill, offers a colorful and welcoming indoor play space for your family. Your child will love exploring our playrooms, which feature age-appropriate sensory and dramatic-play experiences, clean toys and lots of space for your little one to move around. Try our Baby & Me classes, workshops, special holiday programs and neighborhood events. Or, rent our facility for your child's birthday party. 

The DBJCC is open to people of all faiths and backgrounds, proudly cultivating an inclusive space while connecting to a vibrant Jewish community. Our mission is to engage families with young children in a rich array of cultural, social, and educational programs within urban Baltimore that encourage people to participate in ways that are meaningful to them.
