Tu BiSh’vat and Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This year, Tu BiSh’vat and Martin Luther King Jr. Day fall on the same day — January 17, 2022. The convergence of these two seemingly unrelated holidays gives us an opportunity to explore two important issues of our time: climate justice and social justice. 

Grandparents’ Unconditional Love…and Then Some

Grandparents’ unconditional love extends to our grandchildren with developmental and learning differences. We strive to be there when they struggle with emotional challenges. Unconditional love is the magic bridge that spans the generations.

Together, Let’s Save Precious Resources

As grandparents, we think about the world we are leaving our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We face the challenges of climate change and the dwindling of precious natural resources. How can we impart to our grandchildren a commitment to repairing the world even as we spin the dreidel, light the menorah, and perhaps exchange modest gifts?
