Holiday Projects, Everyday Activities, And Travel Ideas With Jewish Themes

By Danielle Dardashti

Want to put a new spin on dreidel games? Or a new twist on making challah? Well then roll up your sleeves, put on your dancin’ shoes, and get out your thinking caps, because The Jewish Family Fun Book will help you find something fun in everything that’s Jewish and something Jewish in everything that’s fun.

This celebration of Jewish family life is the perfect guide for families wanting to put a new Jewish spin on holidays, holy days, and even the everyday. Featuring activities, games, and history, The Jewish Family Fun Book is sure to inspire parents, children, and extended family to connect with Judaism in fun, creative ways.

With over eighty-five easy-to-do activities to re-invigorate age-old Jewish customs and make them fun for the whole family, this book is more than just kids’ stuff. It’s about taking the Jewish family experience to a new educational and entertaining level.

The Jewish Family Fun Book details activities for fun at home and away from home, including recipes, meaningful everyday and holiday crafts, travel guides, enriching entertainment…and much, much more!

Clearly illustrated and full of easy-to-follow instructions, this hands-on guide shows us how to take an active approach to exploring Jewish tradition and have fun along the way.

Each of The Jewish Family Fun Book’s three sections offer dozens of ideas and easy-to-understand instructions:

"Holiday Fun" aims to enrich the appropriate seriousness of Jewish holidays with a healthy dose of fun. How about having a Passover seder in a tent, like Israelites in the desert? Or celebrating the harvest holiday of Shavuot by taking your kids strawberry picking?

"Fun at Home" features Jewish activities ranging from relaxing (with a guide to Jewish books, music, movies, and websites) to exhausting (instructions for games and other outdoor fun); from creative (ideas for arts and crafts projects and recipes) to unforgettable (mitzvah and volunteer opportunities).

"Fun on the Road" is an easy-to-use travel guide, with suggestions for adding a memorable Jewish component to already built-for-fun family vacations. There’s information on Jewish museums, historical sites, camps, festivals, and kosher restaurants across the U.S.
