The Jewish Planner 5781


A beautiful weekly planner based in the Hebrew calendar with monthly teachings, illustrations, and journal prompts.

The Jewish Planner 5781 begins in Elul 5780 and goes through Elul 5781, which lines up with August 20th, 2020 – September 6th 2021.

This planner is designed for people who are newly following the Jewish cycles, as well as for those who have been connected to the Jewish calendar their whole lives.

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.

Monthly Teaching, Tishrei, Tishrei is a month of holiness, joy, and newness - 17 out of the 29 days of the month have special significance. At the beginnins of Tishrei it's time to celebrate Rosh Hashanah - the head of the year and a time for individual atonement. In the middle of the month, there's the week-long harvest festival of Sukkot, the Festival of Booths. Many people build temporary structures outdoors, eat outdoors, and celebrate the plants that are harvested at this time of year, the fruits coming into season, apples, grapes, dates and olives - it's time to harvest honey and rejoice in abundance. At the end of Sukkot is Simchat Torah, the complestion of the annual reading of the entire Torah, and the time to roll the Torah all the way back to the beginning, rejoicing and dancing along the way.

Repairing the World, one Planner at a time

We realize that through producing and shipping a paper product, we are contributing to environmental degradation in the world. That is why, as a mission-driven organization, in addition to the litter tax we pay in Washington state for our paper product, we will give a portion of all profits from sales of The Jewish Planner to the Savory Institute. Holistic solutions that work with local communities to teach farmers how to manage land in order to rebuild our soils are the best hope we have for a sustainable future.

What folks are saying…

 “The Jewish Planner is gorgeous and keeps me thinking in terms of our sacred year. Glad I ordered it!”
– Michael Twitty, author of The Cooking Gene.

“I love it. The layout is so gorgeous. I love the artistic renderings and drawings that live on the pages. I love the verse snippets on the weekly spread pages, and I love the idea of the teachings each month. This calendar takes the concept of a planner and makes it so much more intentional. It allows the calendar to move from a chain holding us down to a work of art that adds meaning to our lives. Everyone should have one!”
Rabbi Josh Warshawsky, musician and song leader

“The Jewish Planner is both a practical tool and a work of art. Everything about it is well-considered and beautiful and I love that I’m inspired each time I use it!”
– Kohenet Keshira HaLevFife, founder of Kesher Communities

“As someone who trains Jewish nature professionals and plans much of my year around the Jewish calendar, having a well-designed planner with both the Hebrew and the Gregorian year was an exciting and highly compelling idea. The design of The Jewish Planner offers me an opportunity to think differently about how I represent a given planned week of my life.”
Yoshi Silverstein, founder of Mitsui Collective

“The Jewish Planner is great for people who have Judaism as a part of their daily life. For example, in a business like mine, which centers around a Jewish calendar, Gregorian calendar, and fashion calendar, having somewhere to compile all scheduling is a great tool. Additionally, I like that it provides smaller nuances of Judaism in day to day life for people who don’t run a business but do want to be mindful of and connected to their faith.”
Ariel Tidhar, Jewish jewelry designer

“The Jewish Planner is so rich, there’s so much, which speaks to the complexity of time. You’ve created something you can hold in your hand to essentially hold all of that, all the complexity. When I held it in my hands, what stood out to me was the circular representation of time. I felt more at ease in my body looking at it!”
– Jodi Balis, host of the Purple Honey Podcast

“My copy of The Jewish Planner arrived and it’s even more magnificent than I could have imagined.”
– @sederplateproject

“The Jewish Planner is the most beautiful planner I have ever seen.”
