Grandparent Circle

Shalom! Welcome! 

The 2023-24 school year is here! We are so happy to be spending our days with your grandchildren, and to welcome you to our Mirowitz family!  

We know how special it is for grandparents to be involved in their grandchildren’s lives, and how precious it is for them to have you in their lives. Whether you are in the same zip code or miles away, we want to give you opportunities to watch them grow.

-Betsy Rubenstein and Randy Garland (Grandparents to Aviva (3) and Coby (Kindergarten)) Co-Chairs, Mirowitz Grandparent Circle

  • Contribute to Mirowitz’s Annual Campaign at any amount.
  • Become a Grateful Grandparent by giving $5,000 or more annually.
