Holiday Resources

What should I serve for Rosh Hashanah?
 
How can I make my sukkah more sustainable?
 
What might an ecologically-inspired, spiritually-tuned-in, multi-generational non-denominational Tu B’Shvat Seder look like – and how can I host one?
 

We’re glad you asked!

Over the years Hazon has developed a number of resources to help you celebrate the Jewish holidays in line with your values, and to use these key moments in the Jewish calendar to bring some of our most complicated struggles to light.  Use these resources to inspire a theme for a holiday, an activity for your family or event for you community.

And remember, Reb Shlomo Carlbach taught that the holidays come to remind us of ideas that we should really be thinking of year-round, so feel free to use these suggestions any time of year!
