Grandparents have traditionally been effective transmitters of religion within the family. When they have adult children in a Jewish interfaith relationship, they can be very important vehicles to teach their interfaith grandchildren about Judaism. This two session workshop meets for two 90 minute sessions, preferably with a week in between.

Through a group discussion, grandparents will be able to address their concerns and their hopes for their grandchildren from Jewish interfaith families. Issues of loss and possibility will be explored. Grandparents will learn skills and techniques to enable the biggest impact on their grandchildren.

Simple ideas such as sending gifts related to Shabbat, Channukah, Passover and other Jewish holidays to helping them plan Jewish outings such as going to the Jewish Museum in the city where the grandchildren live. Through this workshop model grandparents feel affirmed and empowered. Possibilities become clearer. Contact me to find out more!
