Trans-Generations: Supporting Grandparents of Trans and Gender-Expansive Youth - Cohort 4

You are invited to attend Trans-Generations, an affirming online space for Jewish and Jewish-Adjacent*. This online community is provided in partnership with Keshet and the Jewish Grandparents Network.

We understand the unique experiences, challenges, and emotions that arise when a grandchild expresses an underrepresented gender identity. Within Trans-Generations, we foster a safe and inclusive online space where you can connect once a month with other grandparents on a similar path. Whether you are seeking guidance on understanding gender identities, navigating family dynamics, or becoming a knowledgeable advocate, our group is here to support you every step of the way. Together, we can navigate this journey with love, acceptance, and shared wisdom, ensuring our grandchildren feel cherished and affirmed for who they are.

Co-facilitators for the group are Rebecca Minor (she/her), LICSW and Gender Specialist and Dr. Dani Rosenkrantz, PhD (she/they), specialist in Jewish LGBTQIA+ Mental Health. These are 90-minute live online sessions and, with the goal of creating a brave and vulnerable space, will not be recorded. We encourage you to share the class webpage with other Jewish grandparents who may wish to register.

NOTE: We affirm that gender identity is complex and diverse, and gender-expansive people use a wider range of terms to describe their/our gender identities. Not all gender-expansive people use the terms ‘trans’ and ‘nonbinary.’ The organizers of this session have selected these terms for the framing of this session, but do not consider them exclusive terms or assume that they apply to all people. Learn more about gender identity terms here. 

This group is open to all Jewish (and Jewish-Adjacent*) grandparents, regardless of prior familiarity with Judaism or the LGBTQ+ community. We welcome you with open arms and the desire to grow together. To help ensure that all can participate, we ask you to read or watch the materials sent with your confirmation email to become familiar with some basic terms and concepts before your first session. 

This is a four-session series facilitated by mental health professionals with expertise in gender identity and Jewish LGBTQIA+ mental health. Select the schedule that works best for you. If a cohort that fits your schedule is not currently available, please complete the Expression of Interest form so that we can notify you when new sessions open up.

The fee for this four-session program series is $150.  

We never want finances to be a barrier to Jewish community or learning. We have made available reduced fees for those who are unable to pay the full amount. Select a higher ticket price to help make this experience accessible to others. 

Sessions meet: February 28, March 27, April 24, May 22 

*Jewish-Adjacent: Those of us who are not Jewish but are partnered with/have family that are Jewish.
