What's Jewish about being a grandparent? What did we get from our relationships with our grandparents, and what do we wish to pass down to our own grandchildren?  What are the joys and what are the challenges, whether we live next door or are long-distance grandparents? Share our celebrations and conundrums. Explore how we can deal with changing family structures: being grandparents with interfaith families, facing religious differences, divorce, stepfamilies, or having grandchildren with challenges. Learn about possibilities for creating meaningful, memorable experiences, such as the Grandparent/Grandchild Tzedakah Club, Intergenerational Tikkun Olam, and Family Heritage trips.  What were our dreams and memories, and what will our legacy be?
