The three-week Jewish holiday season that begins with Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) is an annual celebration of growth – an autumn journey that Jewish tradition invites us to take year after year. This holiday season, PJ Library invites families to enrich and enliven their celebrations and traditions with A Time to Grow: A PJ Library Family Guide for Starting the Jewish New Year. The beautifully illustrated guide, which PJ Library is shipping to subscriber families in paperback version for the first time this month, will also be available for anyone to download for free at pjlibrary.org/grow.
Whether at synagogue or celebrating at home, A Time to Grow offers families myriad creative ways to connect with the High Holidays: Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Sukkot (Festival of Small Huts) and Simchat Torah (Rejoicing with the Torah). In 2022, the newly expanded guide offers such engaging activities as “Make Your Own Shofar,” “Round Challah-Braiding,” and “Crafting a Torah.” Parents and kids can learn how to cast away mistakes with the cleansing ceremony of Tashlich, create a “kindness wheel” for the New Year, make a mini play sukkah learn step-by-step celebrations – including blessings all aimed at making the High Holidays meaningful, memorable and fun. Though a free download is available, families interested in adding to their home library can get the paperback version of A Time to Grow at amazon.com/pjlibrary soon.
This High Holiday season, PJ Library sweetens the celebration with audio treats for the whole family. The second season of the NAPPA and Parents’ Choice Award-winning podcast, Afternoons with Mimi (for kids 2 to 5) launches on Sept. 13 with holiday wisdom in “Kiddo Learns About Forgiveness.” Listeners are certain to love Mimi’s retelling of the salty story of Jonah, a Yom Kippur tradition. In addition, families can find curated playlists and music videos perfect for the high holidays, Sukkot and Simchat Torah at pjlibrary.org/listen.
