Ruth, you’ve been thinking about and observing this phenomenon for a couple of decades. I’m curious about changes over time.
Fern Chertok
51:12
Did you reach all of the types of grandparents--who was missing from your focus groups? how did the findings differ across types of grandparents?
Rabbi Melissa Buyer-Witman
52:50
where does that pressure come from? is it internal or external?
Rabbi Melissa Buyer-Witman
54:40
also curious to know if shame plays a role here… shame for not doing “enough” Jewishly (even though we know that is not a factor)
Rabbi Robyn Frisch, 18Doors
54:41
Do the grandparents who aren't Jewish feel welcomed by the Jewish community?
Jon Levisohn
55:36
I want to lift up Melissa’s question about shame (and the sources of or reasons for shame). I’m curious about that too.
Rabbi Melissa Buyer-Witman

The reform movement starting using “adjacent” too… still trying to figure out how it sits with me (and others)

Would it be possible to get a copy of Ruth's slides? Thanks,.
Rabbi Robyn Frisch, 18Doors
01:30:22
Ruth, what are the messages you think Jewish parents should be giving their children as they're growing up? That they should ideally marry Jews (but will be accepted if they don't)? That it doesn't matter and they should just date/marry whomever they love?
Rabbi Melissa Buyer-Witman
01:36:31
the Covenant Foundation is working on what you just shared Ruth… that by simply sharing your story helps develop the child’s intergenerational self and builds resilience in children and teens.
Jon Levisohn
01:40:37
And so important for the reality of the contemporary Jewish community. Thanks!
Rabbi Robyn Frisch, 18Doors
