Joy and Complications: Today’s New Jewish Families

To quote Lee M. Hendler, Jewish Grandparent Network Co-Founder and President “These are not the families we expected”.  Jewish home life is changing with growing numbers of interfaith, multi-racial, LGBTQ, and single parent families.  Navigating this changing family landscape filled with rewards and stumbling blocks presents challenges along with opportunities to enrich our families and our communities.

Lee will be joined by Derrick Ashong and Shira Concool to discuss their personal experiences as members of “today’s new Jewish families”.
