Akiva Nursery School
Creates a Loving, Positive, Jewish Environment
it behooves you to provide them
with Jewish books to read. The
same could be said ofJewish hol-
idays and observances year
round. If your grandchildren go
to synagogue with you, they come
to understand that you value the
synagogue and that it is an in-
tegral part of your life.
This is surely an effective way
of influencing them. A shared
Shabbat dinner speaks volumes
about the beauty ofJewish life
and observance. A Chanukah
party, Pesach seder, Purim
se'udah, building a sukkah — all
of these are concrete and vivid ex-
amples of the richness ofJewish
life. If we take time to make chal-
lah with our grandchildren, we
need give them no lectures on the
beauty of the Sabbath. The ac-
tivity itself tells them all they
need to know. The more involved
a grandparent is, the greater the
storehouse of memories grand-
children carry into their future

If we are lucky, we have mem-
ories such as these with our own
grandparents. We know that we
have in our power to make a huge
contribution to our grandchil-
dren's happiness and Jewish fu-
As grandparents, we have al-
ready learned so many important
lessons. We know that small chil-
dren do grow up and that the pe-
riod of childhood is indeed short.
As we observe our grandchildren,
we savor every moment of their
growing years and take delight
in everything they do and say.
We realize only too well that
time passes quickly and that
their early years are especially
precious. Perhaps this also keeps
us young in spirit and outlook.
We are given a second chance to
participate in an exciting educa-
tional experience. We are en-
riched by the very special
relationship that exists between
grandchildren and grandparents.
It is a unique relationship in the
joy it brings both parties. El
