Print pages two times, laminate, and cut apart these cards. You can use them for any purpose you choose. Play Go Fish and Memory in small groups with multiple copies of the cards. Use in the days leading up to Yom Kippur or during the children's program at High Holiday services. Having trouble keeping children entertained during services? Hand them this deck of Yom Kippur cards for Go Fish or Memory.
Here's another game idea. Shuffle and stack the cards in a pile (facing down) or place in a container in front of a small group of 2-6 players. Each players draws a card off the top of the pile or out of the container and reads it or identifies the Yom Kippur concept if they are too young to read. One player might select the Lucky Shofar card and get to pick another card. Another special card included is the Teshuva card which tells the player to lose all their cards, and think of one thing they can improve on this year. Players might select the special 3 Stars Game Over card. When the game is over, players count up their cards. The winner is the player with the most cards.
No, it doesn't sound exciting to an adult, but my children and others have played this at shul during High Holidays, for three years in a row, and are always excited to see who will be the winner with the most cards at the end of the round.
