Who was your best friend growing up? Did you attend a Jewish school or youth group? Do you celebrate the holidays the same way today as you did when you were a kid?
These are some of the questions discussed by students of the Jewish Learning Center of Congregation Bet Shira in Miami with older memebers of the congregation, in the G2G: Generation to Generation program launched this year.
The program's opening event attracted over 120 people, including students, family members and older and members of the congregation.
After a joint Sunday brunch, Dr. Ella Levy, Director of Congregational Learning presented the program, followed by the sisterhood president and rabbi. The day continued with various activities according to age groups, and included sharing and recalling personal stories and memories. The entire school had a day full of intergnerational learning and experiences.
"How many of your grandparents do you remember wearing a Talit? How many women today do you see wearing a Talit?"
"I never had a Bat Mitzvah. Today they do Bat Mitzvahs at that temple"
We are very excited to work with Dr. Ella Levy, Director of Congregational Learning at Bet Shira Congregation and with The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami, headed by Yoram Millman, on this wonderful program.
