Event Series Event Series: Temple Emanuel Grandparents Group

Temple Emanuel Grandparents Group

January 27 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Are you a grandparent or grandfriend? Whether you are Jewish or not, local or far, you are welcome to join us for a Temple Emanuel Grandparents Group, meeting monthly!

We hope that this group facilitates connections and conversations between grandparents and grandfriends with connections to Judaism, either through their own experiences or through the experiences of their children and grandchildren. We will meet once a month on a Saturday afternoon in person and over Zoom, and we will encourage further connection-building through activities between meetings.

Together we will discuss topics like holidays, life cycle events, and opportunities to connect with your grandchildren. We will discuss the “joys and oys” of grandparenting and provide a safe space to ask questions, learn from one another, and celebrate each other’s journeys.

Temple Emanuel’s Program and Volunteer Coordinator Sarah Mangan will facilitate group gatherings and will welcome additional presenters to speak on various topics, including Rabbi Aaron Meyer, Cantor Kalix Jacobson, and other professionals in the field.

You do not need to be a member of Temple Emanuel to join us! This group is open to people from all backgrounds to learn more about Judaism and explore what their relationships to Judaism are now that they are grandparents or grandfriends.

Our winter meetings will be on January 27th, February 10th, and March 9th.

Are you interested in joining us or learning more? Contact Sarah Mangan.
