Rosh Hashanah | The Jewish Agency for Israel


The activities here are aimed primarily at mid and late teens or students; some are suitable for coffee table discussion. The games and projects are marked by age group, with provision for younger children, as well as teenagers.

Most years, Jewish youth organizations or schools, barely have time to introduce materials on Rosh Hashana - the Jewish New Year - and Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement - in their first weeks of the term. Many of them only succeed in addressing Sukkot and Simhat Torah in some depth.

What you will find here is, therefore, a combination of elements to enable you, the educator, to approach the earlier festivals as well, with activities which can continue at least through half - if not the whole - of the first term.

This resource includes activities, games, and lessons to teach Rosh Hashanah, as well as touch on other Fall holidays as well.
