The Jewish Teen Gratitude Journal
In Judaism, Shabbat is a weekly, structured opportunity to reflect on our weeks and our lives. This gratitude journal is modeled after that idea, with structured prompt for the beginning, middle, and end of the week to help you:
- Set goals for yourself for the upcoming week.
- Celebrates the small accomplishments you undertook thus far.
- Reflect on that which you are grateful for as you prepare for Shabbat.
The journal consists of fifty-two pages, one per week, and encourages 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!

#Quieting the Silence: Personal Stories
Jewish Mental Health Toolkit
The Blue Dove Foundation wants to inspire people to be educated, courageous, and confident in offering hope and support to those who struggle with their mental well-being and addiction. Hope is one of the greatest resources we have to change the culture of silence and stigma around mental health issues in the Jewish community.
About the Toolkit
The Jewish Mental Wellness Toolkit is a response to continuous requests for help in the area of mental health for synagogues, schools, and community leaders. As a practical guide for everyday use, it offers guidance and support for transforming community culture along with practical and concrete information about mental health and wellness. Created through a Jewish lens, this Toolkit is full of resources, facts, and suggested readings. We hope it will empower all of us to turn hope into action.
