Breastfeeding at: B’nai Jacob, Phoenixville, PA

B’nai Jacob, in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA

Breastfeeding in the Sanctuary:

It is permitted.  “I’ve done it. I’ve seen others do it. And no one has made any objections. Our rabbi (before she left this past summer) was very pro-breastfeeding and fine with us nursing in the sanctuary.”  Doing so is comfortable.

Private Nursing Locations:

There is no designated nursing room/space.

Other Information:

The website offers no policy about breastfeeding.

The community is supportive and positive about breastfeeding.

General Child Friendliness:

There are no changing tables.  There is no stroller parking, or place for children’s stuff.

Please tell me about the attitude toward children in the main service, and about attitudes toward bottlefeeding!
