The Tallit Project
The Jewish Grandparents Network
What is the Jewish Grandparents Network?
The Jewish Grandparents Network (JGN), founded in 2018, is a national organization that educates, connects, and supports grandparents as essential partners in enriching Jewish life. JGN creates opportunities to engage grandparents in innovative experiences that help them pursue their complex and essential roles with confidence and joy.
How is the grandparent-grandchild relationship significant?
Grandparents embody both the real and symbolic connection to ancestry. When grandparents share the Jewish values and rituals that shaped their lives, they can encourage their grandchildren to add those to their toolkit to use in their own lives. The Tallit Project represents a vibrant and creative means to connect grandparents and grandchildren in the context of Jewish tradition.
