Temple Emanuel Grandparents Group

October 28, 2023 @ 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, starting this fall and 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. 

Please fill out this form to express interest in joining the group and to tell us more about you!

Questions? Contact Sarah Mangan.
