We live in a world where the Gregorian calendar dominates, and it is often difficult to reconcile its rhythms with the rhythms of nature and Jewish tradition. If you’ve ever tried to keep track of important Jewish dates, their teachings, and how they’re relevant to our current world – while at the same time keeping up with the demands of the modern world – you know it’s close to impossible. There’s no single source we could find that intersects the Jewish calendar and the Gregorian one in a way that respects both and could be carried with you day to day. Furthermore, it takes hunting through multiple sources to find teachings and inspiration for each Jewish cycle or important date, which then has to be scribbled in the margins of a standard agenda.
This planner is the solution.
Through its design, this planner implicitly offers wisdom about lunar cycles, connection to nature, and Jewish traditions. Through the elegant integration of both calendar systems, the user is offered an opportunity to align these two aspects of self. There are teachings, quotes, and other short texts that guide us closer to living in synchronicity with nature and Jewish cycles of time.
Our hope is that this planner will allow meaningful accessibility for connection with the Jewish calendar. This can serve as a container or structure to align your life and tasks with the natural rhythms and energies of the seasons, agricultural cycle, holidays, and Shabbat.
