Time to get ready for the 2012 High Holidays!

30 Aug

Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) is just 17 days away and I am realizing it is time to start our preparations. As I have mentioned before in my posts on getting ready for Pesach (Passover), I have a checklist to help me get ready for each holiday. It really helps me not forget anything that needs to be done and it gives me a timeline to do them. It also reminds me of things that have worked and not worked from past years.

Here is my High Holiday prep checklist, which includes Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. You may want to adapt it to your needs and to include the following things which we do not do:

  • Holiday cards (we send ours our around Chanukah/Christmas)
  • Babysitting arrangements (either at shul (temple) or at home, for whatever days you want to go to shul to daven (pray))

I store this file on my computer, but also have a copy in my Holiday Prep binder, which has preparations lists for all the Jewish holidays. I have separate binders for Chanukah/Christmas and Pesach, since those two involve a lot more preparations!

When planning our menus, I like to type them, too, so that I can print them out and put them on our refrigerator. Then my husband highlights items as he cooks them! I can’t wait to try some new recipes and hope the New Year brings us some better mazel!

    I have a bunch of posts on getting ready for yom tov; Elul prep and Rosh Hashanah are in full swing now (here’s the R”H page: http://organizedjewishhome.com/shalom-bayit-book-sbb-2/shabbat/rosh-hashanah/).

    I just put up a kid’s mitzvah checklist today, in fact. It’s coming quickly!

      I will have to check yours out and make sure I didn’t forget anything! The mitzvah checklist sounds neat, too. Thanks for reading and sharing!
