Trans-Generations is a compassionate community dedicated to providing support, education, and empowerment for Jewish grandparents navigating the journey of affirming and loving their transgender, nonbinary, or gender-expansive grandchild. Join us to connect with other grandparents, share experiences, and gain valuable insights to create a loving and inclusive environment for our grandchildren.
Co-facilitators for the group will be Rebecca Minor (she/her), LICSW, and gender specialist, and Dr. Dani Rosenkrantz, Ph.D. (she/they), specialist in Jewish LGBTQIA+ mental health. We encourage you to come to all four sessions, but you are welcome to drop in less frequently.
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 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, let us navigate this journey with love, acceptance, and shared wisdom, ensuring our grandchildren feel cherished and affirmed for who they are.
Note: 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 become familiar with some basic terms and concepts before your first session. Once you complete the registration, you will receive a confirmation email including the Zoom link and preparatory materials.
*Jewish-adjacent: Those of us who are not Jewish but are partnered with/have family that are Jewish.
