How to “Have” Jewish Grandchildren

We don’t really have any control over whether we have grandchildren and we have even less control over whether those grandchildren are Jewish. David Werdiger, a public speaker and writer, recounts a conversation with a friend at shul that spurred his thoughts over what we do actually have control about when it comes to grandchildren and Jewish continuity.

Melbourne native David Werdiger is a community activist, entrepreneur, author, public speaker, and advisor. His activism includes organizations like JewishCare (social welfare), Australian Jewish Funders (philanthropy), Lamdeni Hebrew School (informal education), and the Shabbat Project (engagement). David is an accomplished thinker and author; his first book is on intergenerational wealth and business transition, with another on the way about the impact of social media on society. David is married with five children.
