SWEET SHEMA from page 33
Jewish bedtime story. Your child will
love hearing this before bed.
• Have your child make her own
pillowcase with Jewish designs. Use
permanent markers or paints, avail-
able at craft stores. Write a favorite
commandment to remember.
• According to a study by Arthur
Stone, associate professor of psychia-
try and psychology at the Medical
School of the State University of New
York at Stony Brook, our immune
systems actually get a boost from
small moments of joy. No one is say-
ing yet that being happy actually pre-
vents colds, but clearly nothing could
be wrong with makinc, children
happy. Once a week, leave your son
or daughter a tiny Jewish treat —
stickers, a candy treat (to be eaten the
next day), a book — on his or her
pillow as he learns the whole Shema.
• Over a cup of hot chocolate on a
cold winter night, tell a family story
— with a Jewish angle. Parents and
grandparents love telling stories about
their past, children love hearing
them, and family stories help boost
Jewish identity and commitment. Ask
relatives (especially those who sur-
vived the Holocaust) to remember an
important time they said the Shema.
• If you and/or your children don't
know Hebrew, consider buying flash
cards and learning just one letter
together every night.
And here are some more ideas from
JEFF, Jewish Experiences For
Families, a division of the Alliance
For Jewish Education:
• Create your own family ritual: It
might be a funny poem you say
together at bedtime or a bedtime
game. Or write your own family
prayer that you say every night
together as a family.
• Talk about the events of the day:
What was special about the day? Did
someone in the family do a mitzvah
today? Why was that mitzvah impor-
tant to other people and to God?
How do we want to make tomorrow?
Talk about the many things in a day
for which we are thankful.
• Read a Jewish story: It may be a
Jewish book or an otherwise non-
Jewish book that you make Jewish by
how you read it and from the values
it teaches. The stories can also be
about different Jewish members of
your family and you unique heritage.
• Yesh Li ("I have") Pajamas game.
Talk about different colors, using the
Hebrew names for them. Then have
the child say "Yesh li pajamas
(color in Hebrew).
• Make a boker toy/lila toy ("Good
Morning, Good Night") door sign
with the Shema on each side. Read
the sign before you go to bed and
when you get up, making sure to put
the sign the right way every day.
• Create a nightlight or switch plate
for your room. You can write the
Shema on it, or have a sticker with
the Shema to put on it. Read the
prayer before you shut the lights out
and again when you turn them on in
