  1. Tzedakah and the Jewish Holidays

    (With thanks to the Shefa Fund - whose successor organization, Jewish Funds for Justice, has become part of Bend The Arc - for the idea for this piece.)

    For centuries, giving to tzedakah has been a traditional way to mark Jewish holidays. But all holidays are not created equal. In this resource, we offer connections between the theme of each holiday or season, and some possible giving opportunities that correspond with it.

  3. How to Make Yom Kippur Meaningful for Our Children

    Helping religious school students experience the richness of the Jewish holiday cycle is one of the great joys of Jewish education. Yom Kippur, however, is probably the most challenging holiday to explain meaningfully on a child's level. Void of an historical/political backdrop, Yom Kippur is a day full of abstractions which often elude adult understanding. What does it really mean for us to create a state of “purity?” What are the ways we need to work on our social relationships and the ways we need to clarify our relationship with God?

  4. A Version of Israel's Secular Shabbat -- Via a Song

    The song below, Shabbat Ba’boker can be found on Arik Einstein and Yoni Richter’s CD , “When I Was a Kid.” It is a Shabbat song with no reference to ritual or practice. In a way that only an Israeli song can express, it communicates a deep sense of how joyous Sabbath can be. It is upbeat and jazzy.
