Teshuvah Taco


Explore teshuvah through this unique activity with multiple connections to kids’ daily lives.  As students think about the layers of a taco, they think about the actions needed to fulfill mitzvot in the new year. Download this activity to connect teshuvah, tacos, and National Taco Day to make for a real-life application of learning. Students will pick a mitzvah that they can adopt (or do better) and reflect on the teshuvah arc that begins in the month of Elul and culminates at the end of Sukkot.
