The High Holidays is when families and communities come together to strengthen our Jewish connection. We’ve been doing that for thousands of years.

These Kavana cards were created in 2021 when Shuls were closed, and we had to find our own inspiration.

Kavana means intention, focus, concentration. Kavana Cards are a set of impactful do-it-yourself High Holiday experiences. They present the key prayers and traditions of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur in a way that is meaningful and easily doable, for anyone of any background.

You can spend 10 minutes on each, or you can spend an hour. They can be experienced by young and old, alone or in a group, as an inner conversation with yourself or a meaningful discussion with others. The point is to have a soulful moment, connect with the essence of the day and bring it to life.

As Jews, we’ve seen a lot in our long history. Experience hastaught us that every challenge can be turned into an opportunity. Let’s make this challenge a catalyst for inner growth and deepeningour connection to our Jewish soul.

Let’s do High Holidays better than ever, and bring down a year of healing and joy to the entire world.
