Why do we blow a shofar? What should we do in between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur? When do we sit in the sukkah? The answers to these questions – and much, much more – can be found in “A Time to Grow: A PJ Library Family Guide to the Fall Holidays”, a beautiful, free resource to help Jewish families around North America celebrate the fall holidays in engaging fashion. PJ Library’s bigger refreshed guide for 2021 is available to download now at pjlibrary.org/fallholidays.
Whether you’ll be at synagogue or celebrating at home, the beautifully-illustrated “A Time to Grow” offers families myriad creative ways to connect with the High Holidays: Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Sukkot (Festival of Small Huts” and Simchat Torah (Rejoicing with the Torah). In 2021, the colorful newly-expanded guide offers such engaging activities as “Make Your Own Shofar,” “Round Challah-braiding,” the story of Jonah for kids, instructions for shaking the lulav during sukkot, fill-in-the-blank discussion questions, step-by-step celebrations, including blessings all aimed at making the High Holidays meaningful, memorable and fun, this year and in the future.
