Happy Grandparents Day!

Grandparents Day is on Sunday, and here at JOI we would like to take a moment to acknowledge the important role grandparents can play in nurturing the Jewish identity of their grandchildren, including grandchildren that are being raised in intermarried/interpartnered households. Whether it’s hosting a festive meal for the Jewish New Year, sending grandchildren current events about Israel, helping grandchildren build a Hanukkah menorah, or any other Jewish activity, we created an e-card to say “Thank you” for all that you do to help strengthen the Jewish community.

Please feel free to pass the card along to any grandparents that you think might enjoy it. Happy Grandparents Day!


  1. I noticed on the Grandparents Circle website that there is no such group in NYC (but if you’re in Wichita or Reading, you’re in luck!). Per ‘Spinal Tap’, don’t worry its not a big Jewish city.

  2. I am not sure of your point. Grandparents Circle began only 1.5 years ago in Los Angeles. It will be in nearly 40 communities this fall. To be sure, there will soon be one near you. Not to worry.
