Who’s Your Bubbe Now? And Why Does it Matter?

Tuesday, May 14, 2019, 6:00pm – 8:00pm EDT
Private home (Upper East Side)
New York, NY
United States

Come learn about the first ever study of Jewish grandparents in the United States and how the findings can affect our work not only with this overlooked population, but with all generations in Jewish families.

The national study of Jewish grandparents collected data on their attitudes, behaviors, needs and demographics. Two funders active in this space will discuss what the findings suggest about creating experiences that will help unleash grandparent-grandchild “magic” in the Jewish community; ways to put grandparents on the agenda for your grantees; and how your experiences with (or as!) grandparents can help to guide the organizations you feel most passionate about. Scroll down to RSVP.
