Printable Lunchbox Notes

Whether you send dinner leftovers, PB&J, or a Pinterest worthy bento box, packing lunch is an act of love. Now you can add an extra special—and Jewish—touch to each lunch time.

Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, author of the PJ Library Parent Book Choice SelectionNurture the Wow and Rabbi-in-residence for Avodah, inspired the creation of these notes. Learn more in "The Lunchbox Story" video from BimBam below:

There are two sets of lunchbox notes below, one for kids and one for grownups. (Why should the kids have all the fun, right?). In the Printable for Parents, you’ll find sage bits of wisdom from Jewish scholars like Shammai and Hillel. The kids’ printable includes 11 pre-printed cards with advice to help your budding mensch through the day and one blank card for you to customize.
