Days of Gratitude is a six-month journey to notice — and give gratitude for — the unnoticed blessings in our lives.
Developed in partnership with dozens of organizations, Days of Gratitude is framed around the Jewish tradition of blessings. It features prompts, resources, and activities designed to increase resilience and find hope during these difficult times.
Days of Gratitude was originally created and launched in Israel as “Aseret Yemei Todah” by Beit Prat — Israeli Midrasha. It is powered by M²: The Institute for Experiential Jewish Education, with support from the Jim Joseph Foundation, the Maimonides Fund, and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation through The Jewish Community Response and Impact Fund.

Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, Days of Gratitude was first celebrated in May 2020 by more than 315 organizational partners and 3,500 subscribers. Acts and expressions of gratitude reached more than 34,000 people.
