What is the “A Kindness a Day” Calendar?2008 Calendar Cover

Areyvut’s “A Kindness a Day” calendar is a daily calendar containing 365 suggested activities that exemplify Jewish values.  Relevant Judaic quotes serve as an adjunct to each day’s entry.  Activities are based on such ideals as chesed, tzedakah tikkun olam and character improvement. The 2008 calendar is great for adults and children, for homes, schools and organizations, both as a guide to help inculcate Jewish values into one’s life and as a springboard for discussion and study.


How do I go about following the daily entries?


There is no doubt that many of the sources and activities in this calendar will speak to you on a personal level. Some, however, will need to be adapted to meet your specific needs and individual circumstances.  If you are unable to do a kindness a day, then choose those kindnesses that you connect with. Share your personal strengths and talents with those who truly need them and implement those strengths in to your acts of chesed.  Let this calendar serve as your guide, and use its resources in a way that is comfortable and meaningful to you.

  • Gifts for friends, family, co-workers, and educators

  • Much, much more
