Opening the Dor

By connecting teens and seniors, the Opening the Dor program focuses on storytelling, heritage, shared history, family traditions, legacy, philanthropy and Jewish giving.

The main goal

In 2020, Honeycomb launched this new pilot program to engage seniors and grandparents in building relationships with teens and becoming more active participants in shared Jewish community practices and activities.

Established Jewish teen philanthropy programs engage returning participants/alumni in learning and exploration sessions, culminating in a teen-run giving circle experience for grandparents/seniors in their community.
