About the Jewish Teen Gratitude Journal

In Judaism, Shabbat is a time when we reflect upon our week. In this gratitude journal, the prompts mirror this idea, with a prompt for the beginning, middle, and end of the week. The first allows you to set goals for yourself for the upcoming week. The second celebrates the small accomplishments you undertook thus far. And the third, the reflection that comes with the tradition of Shabbat, is about the crux of your gratitude for the week prior.

The journal consists of fifty-two pages, one per week, for analyzing your life, encouraging you to practice gratitude for a few moments every week. Your mindset can change with the littlest habits, so let’s give it a try!
