What is your favorite place? Is it at home? Is it nearby? Or is it far away from home? You could share with one another: What your special place is, what you like about it, and what makes it special to you.
You can find good things everywhere; every place has some grace. Take turns choosing a place, whether near or far, in Israel or elsewhere, real or imaginary, and having the other participants ask questions about it to discover what makes it so wonderful.
What is happening near your home? Go on a short walk outside, and try to find out how you could do good in your own surroundings: How about picking up wastepaper and placing it in the recycling receptacle? Or offering people waiting at the bus station a drink of water? Or setting up a street library with your neighbors?
The goat is by Cyril and Tevye’s side throughout the book. You may enjoy looking for the goat in the illustrations: What is it doing? What is its connection to the family? How about trying to tell the story from the goat’s point of view? What happens to it as the book progresses?
Gather several small gifts that you would like to give your family: A drawing, greeting card, or item. Take turns hiding your gifts and having the rest of your family look for the treasure using clues: “Near and far”, “hot and cold”, or arrows placed around the house.
