Yom Kippur: It Doesn't Have to Be Such a Hard Day!
Grownups, this e-book is for you.
Yom Kippur has the potential to wipe you out because the combination of fasting and parenting is a very hard one. So this guide is really directed at you, and not the kids. There are way more words and a lot fewer graphics in this guide. But for good reason - we've included a number of ways, so that with a small amount of preparation, you can have a special and calm day with your kids - especially because no one wants to look back at Yom Kippur and remember a day of yelling or feeling annoyed with their kids.
We highly encourage being proactive here - bring out a new board game, puzzle, or building set that you've been saving, or better yet, trade games and puzzles for the day with a neighbor or friend. Read through the pages here, take a few minutes to do some printing or cutting because stickers and prize cards can make everything better, and take a few more minutes to explain to your family how each activity works. And finally, be sure to give some thought to the pre-Yom Kippur meal game, so that your Yom Kippur can look like the Yom Kippur you want it to be.
