Sep 09 2021 6 Ways to Celebrate Grandparents Day
We are so fortunate that Grandparents Day falls right in the middle of the ten Days of Awe. Here are six awesome ways to celebrate National Grandparents Day, September 12, 2021.
- In six words write what it means to you to be a grandparent. We invite you to post your six-word memoir in the thread in our Facebook group. We welcome you there!
- Exchange a photo with your grandchildren. Include a personal message with a wish for the new year, how you feel about each other, or anything else you’d like to express.
- Do Tashlikh. Whether virtual or in person, try this deeply meaningful act of renewal with your grandchildren and their families. Learn more about the ritual HERE.
- Consider any actions or words that may require forgiveness from a member of your family. Asking forgiveness from a child or grandchild sends an important message—one of vulnerability and seeking to do better. Grandparents are important spiritual models.
- Go on a miracle-of-creation walk with your grandchildren or call or text them about what you found on your own walk. Rosh Hashanah is also known as the Birthday of the World; this is a great time to reconnect to the miracles that surround us.
- Honor your grandchildren and their families by contributing to a cause or organization that is important to them.
