The Role of Grandparents in Their Grandchildren’s
B-Mitzvah Experience

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.

The report below documents key findings and recommendations from the symposium. JGN continues to develop resources for spiritual leaders, Jewish organizations, and grandparents to elevate the role of grandparents in the B-Mitzvah experience.
