Calling all grandparents, aunties, uncles, and other cherished senior family members of Jewish children:
Are the grandkids and little ones in your life questioning and exploring gender and identity?
Do you want to learn more about how to show up for the young people in your life?
Do you have questions about what language and terms to use with and about them? Of course you do!
Grandparents and family have vital roles to play in making children feel loved and embraced for who they are and who they become. Keshet is developing new projects to help seniors who may be unfamiliar with the LGBTQ community to gain deeper understanding and insight so we can continue to make our Jewish families and communities places where our young people feel loved and affirmed for their whole selves.
More coming soon! Some resources to start with, for now:
Understanding Gender, from Gender Spectrum
Supporting your LGBTQ+ Grandchild, from PFLAG
LGBTQ Terminology, from Keshet
