The wisdom of grandparents can be of great influence in the way their grandchildren think and lead their lives. In light of this ever-timely topic, Rebbetzin Judi Steinig, the Orthodox Union’s Associate Director of Community Services and rebbetzin of the Young Israel of Bayside in Queens, NY, will be guest speaker at the Delray Orthodox Synagogue on Monday, February 16 at 7:30 p.m. to present her reflections on “Grandparenting: The Lasting and Loving Legacy.”
The OU-member synagogue is located at 7319 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach. The event will be presented by the Orthodox Union’s Department of Community Engagement as well as the Delray Orthodox Synagogue.
Rebbetzin Steinig said, “As a grandmother of three boys who live just a block away from us, I can truly appreciate the value of a close relationship between the generations. Grandparents have the responsibility and the zechut (merit) to share family stories and customs with their children that will be enjoyed and treasured for years to come.”
In her role as the OU’s Associate Director of Community Services, Rebbetzin Steinig provides resources and assistance for synagogues and sisterhoods, in addition to coordinating programming for synagogue leaders, families, retirees, women, singles, and rebbetzins. Prior to this position she was the Director of Programming for the National Council of Young Israel. She has lectured in many venues regarding navigating the dating process for singles and parents as well as on various other women’s, parenting, and grandparenting issues. She and her husband, Rabbi Sholom Steinig, of the Young Israel of Bayside, have four children and, as noted, three grandchildren.
