Grandparenting in a Pandemic
April 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
A conversation with Temple Emanuel member Ruth Nemzoff
Join us online with Zoom.
Long-distance grandparenting has always been a challenge. Coronavirus has made it a whole lot harder – even for grandparents who live down the block. But there are also some new opportunities to connect even more deeply – if we take advantage of them. Join me in conversation with Dr. Ruth Nemzoff to swap ideas of how, as she says, “to be a creative grandparent/grand-friend using old and new technologies and all the skills you’ve ever learned in life.”
Grab a lunch and log on to ZOOM to join us for this special virtual lunch-and-learn conversation.
Dr. Ruth Nemzoff is the author of Don’t Roll Your Eyes: Making In-Laws Into Family (Palgrave/Macmillan, 2012) and Don’t Bite Your Tongue: How to Foster Rewarding Relationships With Your Adult Children (Palgrave/Macmillan, 2008) and a frequent speaker on family dynamics. She is a resident scholar at Brandeis University Women’s Studies Research Center.
Dr. Nemzoff was Assistant Minority Leader of the New Hampshire Legislature and New Hampshire Deputy Commissioner of Health and Welfare. She holds a doctorate in social policy from Harvard University, an MA in counseling from Columbia University and BA from Barnard College, and her papers are archived at Harvard University’s Schlesinger Library.
Currently, Dr. Nemzoff serves on the board of Interfaith Family and is the advice columnist for the American Israelite. She and her husband have four adult children, four in-law children and eleven grandchildren.
