L’Shanah Tova! (Happy Jewish New Year)

Tonight the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) begins. There are many special customs for this particular holiday. We eat special foods, send holiday cards, blow the shofar (a Ram’s horn), and more.

Years ago, I came up with a Kids’ Mitzvah Checklist to keep my kids engaged in the holiday and its preparations. I have included various mitzvahs (and clip art) that pertain to the holiday in chronological order. My kids loved getting to put stickers on their charts as they completed each custom/requirement. We chose a special reward the kids would receive when they had covered their boards. Usually it was a special outing or treat (like ice cream).

I hope your kids will enjoy it as much as mine have. Click below to download:
