Grandparents Circle Coming To Wycliffe

The Commission for Jewish Education of the Palm Beaches will hold its Grandparents Circle program on five consecutive Tuesdays at 10 a.m. beginning Feb. 12 at Wycliffe Country Club (4650 Wycliffe Country Club Blvd., Wellington).

Created by the Jewish Outreach Institute and implemented locally by the CJE, this free program includes a five-session course, a connection to family-friendly events and a national e-mail discussion forum providing a supportive online community of peers.

“Regardless of how children in interfaith homes are being raised, each child is entitled to their legacy. As Jewish grandparents, we have the privilege of passing down our heritage,” said N. Deborah Stapler of Palm Beach Gardens, a Commission for Jewish Education board member and participant in CJE’s Grandparents Circle inaugural year.

The CJE provides ideas and support that can lead to positive Jewish conversations and activities with their adult children, their spouses and their grandchildren.

Rabbi Janie Grackin, the Grandparents Circle instructor for CJE, is an international community educator, who uses the art of storytelling to inspire and educate. She creates programs for intergenerational populations in synagogues and schools in the U.S., Europe and Israel.
