B-Mitzvah Learning Experience for Grandparents and Teen Grandchildren
Many grandparents play a key role in their grandchildren’s Jewish experience. It is often grandparents’ responsibility to pass on Jewish traditions, values, and culture to the next generation — and this usually takes place in the home.
Grandparents are in a unique position to participate in the B-Mitzvah rite of passage with their teen grandchild. Grandparents often have the time to do so, they are their grandchildren’s biggest cheerleaders, and they may be seeking deeper Jewish engagement and learning themselves.
This is a 2-session course. Cost is $150 per grandchild-grandparent pair. See below for more details.
Course dates and times are set according to your schedule. Let us know you're interested and we will connect with you to set a time.

Online Jewish Learning and the Jewish Grandparents Network present L’Dor VaDor (“from Generation to Generation”), a program that provides a facilitated online setting for grandparents to engage Jewishly with their B-Mitzvah grandchildren regardless of physical location, affiliation with a religious institution, or previous experience with Jewish studies.
In this two-session course — each one-hour session will be scheduled at a time that is suitable for the participants and facilitator — grandparent and grandchild will focus on the personal meaning of “from generation to generation”; the meaning and significance of the B-Mitzvah coming-of-age ritual; and the family’s heritage and family stories.
