We have curated some easy additions for your Yom Kippur!

We know that this Day of Atonement is a solemn holiday, so we have curated some activities to help share with your residents for educational and individual purposes.

Activities that need little to nothing!

  • Throw bread into a lake – Tashlich is a ceremony where communities walk to a body of water and throw breadcrumbs to symbolize casting off their sins.  It’s a way of throwing away old grievances or things you  may have done to wrong someone else.  Tashlich is a nice way to get some fresh air and bring the meaning of the holiday closer to home.
  • Do a Good Deed – Tikkun Olam is the act of repairing the world, one good deed at a time.  At Rosh Hashanah, it is tradition to focus on spreading kindness through your actions, and resolve to continue your practice throughout the world.  Let residents volunteer to help stock shelves at a local food bank, collect canned goods or old clothes to donate.  Have a treasure hunt to find loose change to donate.
