With the support of a Covenant Foundation Signature Grant, the Jewish Grandparents Network (JGN) is reimagining grandparents’ role in their grandchildren’s B-Mitzvah experience.
If you are a rabbi, educator, spiritual leader, philanthropist, grandparent, or parent, you too might be reimagining the B-Mitzvah experience today: What does the teen want? What is meaningful for my family? What is right for my community?
JGN held a two-afternoon virtual symposium in May 2022. Jewish spiritual leaders, educators, ritualists, grandparents, and teens from across the country explored expansively how to transform grandparents’ roles in their grandchildren’s B-Mitzvah.
This report documents the key findings and recommendations from the symposium.
