We have curated some easy additions for your Yom Kippur!
We know that this Day of Atonement is a solemn holiday, however 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.
