More Marvelous Mitzvot for Winter Break – Updated & Expanded

These ideas and activities for winter break will keep your students engaged in Jewish life while school is out of session. Activities include donating old clothes, helping parents around the house, reading Jewish books, baking challah, and participating in a garbage reduction challenge.

Students check mitzvah activities off the list as they complete them. You may wish to offer your students incentives to do some of these mitzvot during break. Anyone who completes two mitzvah activities gets a small prize; anyone who completes three miztvah activities will be part of a special celebration.
