Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day was designed to strengthen the bond between generations of families and friends. DKJA’s wish for this special day is for our grandparents and special friends to appreciate how unique they are as they provide the continuity, traditions, and the history our children must know to become knowledgeable Jews as they become young adults.
One of our primary goals is to create a curriculum and an atmosphere in which children can understand who they are and where they come from. Donna Klein Jewish Academy stands on an educational triad of Jewish living, learning, and academic achievement. Intergenerational ties and traditions are a vital part of Jewish education and Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day exemplifies how DKJA supports and recognizes this aspect of our students’ lives.
