Discussion and Support
Description Grandchildren bring us so much joy and they provide an opportunity to reflect on our dearest values. In the age of intermarriage, many Jewish grandparents are left wondering how to foster Jewish identity for future generations while respecting the choices of their children. Join other Jewish grandparents on Monday, November 22, 2010, 7:00-8:30 p.m. for a unique opportunity to discuss the challenges, questions and feelings that arise for grandparents when their children intermarry and then start raising children of their own. This supportive and engaging workshop is open to all Jewish grandparents and will be held at the Springfield Jewish Community Center, Neal Webber Building, 1160 Dickinson Street, Springfield. Shoshana Zonderman, Interfaith Outreach Coordinator at Jewish Family Service, will facilitate the first in a series of discussions focusing on strategies and suggestions for Jewish grandparents. Please bring your questions and concerns as well as your own recommendations. Shoshana is an experienced clinical social worker and Jewish family educator. Light refreshments will be served. This innovative BOLD Visions program is co-sponsored with the Springfield Jewish Community Center. Major funding for this program is provided by the Lawrence J. and Anne Rubenstein Foundation. Pre-registration is requested. For more information or to pre-register, contact Jewish Family Service at 413-737-2601, or visit the website,
