L'Shana Tovah / Happy New Year!

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is one of the most important Jewish Holidays of the year - and thanks to scheduled posts, I've written this post ahead of time and timed it so that it will post at the beginning of Rosh Hashanah/Friday sunset, while I'm in synagogue.

To commemorate this joyous occasion, I'm sharing with you a few of my favorite handmade Rosh Hashanah cards from etsy.

Above we have Jewish New Year Cards by SusanItkinBatik. In the middle it shows the Hebrew in colorful lettering, and around the edges we see both a translation and a transliteration.

Next, sporting some colorful apples, Shana Tovah Warhol Apples cards by ooliecards.

Finally, we end with a little robot humor with the Robot Rosh Hashanah card from lrhbindustries.

(Apples and honey are traditional foods to eat on Rosh Hashanah, symbolizing the sweetness of a new year.)

Wishing all my blog readers joy and peace this Rosh Hashanah.
