family photos storyFamily photos reveal much about us and the people who shaped our early years. Why not take time with your children to learn something new from them? Dig a little deeper into scenes from previous generations. With photos on the screen before you, or with photo album in hand, here are a few ideas.

Conversation starters

  • Vocabulary words associated with family religious ceremonies (for example, kaddish, sanctification); and words that are no longer used by your family, and why.
  • Words of wisdom: favorite expressions or words to live by used by people in the photo.
  • Holiday decorations used in the photo and what they symbolize.
  • Event pictured in the photo that triggered a change of heart or changed the relationship between people.

Have fun!
