Grandparenting today is a rewarding and challenging experience. In this 4-session class, we will come together to learn how Jewish wisdom can help us navigate our role in our children’s and grandchildren’s lives.

Some of the topics we’ll cover are:
– How do we maintain good relationships with our children and grandchildren and not let our differences divide us?
– How does our role as grandparent evolve as our children and grandchildren change?
– How are we shaped by our relationships with our own parents and grandparents?
– How do we transmit our values to our grandchildren?

Tuition: $65/person $110/couple
