Approximately 8,000 individuals participated in the first national study of Jewish grandparents. Commissioned by the Jewish Grandparents Network, the study provides in-depth quantitative data on the demographics, attitudes, behaviors and aspiration and invaluable insights into Jewish observance and aspirations and intergenerational relations and dynamics.
David Raphael, Co-Founder and CEO of the Jewish Grandparents Network will provide a full briefing on the study and its findings with specific focus on the findings that impact professionals and leaders of Jewish Human Service organizations.

David and his wife Jo live in Atlanta, have three grown children and one granddaughter.
