Class Title: Building Resilience through Stories: A Special Session for Grandparents
Program: Open Circle Jewish Learning, Parenting and Grandparenting
Instructor: Margie Bogdanow LICSW
Date: November 5, 2023 (1 session)
Day and Time: Sundays 3:00-4:30 p.m.
Location: In-person, Lehrhaus, Somerville, MA
Research shows that learning and knowing about family history helps build resilience in children of all ages. Judaism is a religion of stories. We tell the same Torah stories over and over and each time they have new meaning with the Passover Seder being the most famous example. As grandparents, sharing our stories is one of the most important things we can do for our grandchildren. Today our stories can be told in many ways, from sitting on a lap to sitting at computers across the world. They can be shared in words, in music and in pictures.
Join other grandparents to reflect on our stories, explore the Jewish wisdom around the value of storytelling, and share practical approaches to becoming impactful stewards of our family narrative. We will meet at Lehrhaus – a new Jewish Tavern for Learning in Somerville, MA.
