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.
