We first became acquainted with MercAndJones when searching for the best of the best in Twinkle Twinkle Little Star party supplies and have since fallen in love with their glitter cake toppers. Most recently we featured them in our Pink Ballerina Tutu Party and our Holy Communion Celebration. And today, on our Instagram feed, we noticed there are still a few hours left to take advantage of MercAndJones 22% OFF sale ✨ ✨ USE CODE twenty-two ✨when you spend $30 or more in the Etsy store. And truthfully, even if you miss the sale, these toppers are so worth the extra couple of dollars. As you can clearly, see they elevate a fine cake to a fabulous cake, instantly!

This week has the potential of being a profoundly spiritual week for millions of people across America. Not only did Jews across the world celebrate Yom Kippur, a day of atonement and repentance, a day reflection and meditation, Pope Francis landed in Washington, D.C and immediately began sharing his message of love for all. Today we sincerely hope that the Pope's message will remind us all, no matter our personal religious faith or affiliation, to find the courage to make our lives a blessing, today and everyday.

For years I have been sending out wishes of sweet blessings filled with abundant joy and peace to friends and family as we prepare to celebrate another religious holiday, the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. But in all truthfulness, for the last few years, I have gotten lazy. Rather than planning ahead and keeping an eye out for the perfect L'Shanah Tovah greeting card months in advance as I did in my youth, I have waited until the last minute and ended up sending blah picture-less emails with a line or two of text. If I was feeling particularly industrious and creative, I colored the text blue.
This year I found an amazing company, PurpleTrail.com that not only has lovely selection of elegant Jewish New Years cards, they encourage their visitors to personalize their cards by adding photos, moving and changing text, and even adding embellishments and background images. And best of all, Purple Trail offers the choice of mailing your cards, printing your cards at home, or emailing them! And now for the clincher — you can send online invitations or eCards for FREE to up to 50 email recipients! If you want to send your card to more than 50 email addresses or would like to add music to your card, simply join one of Purple Trail's membership clubs — all very, very reasonably priced.
Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year – L' Shanah Tovah

With this incentive, we encourage all of you who are planning on hosting family and friends for Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippor, or Sukkot to stock up on wines from Israel. Plan ahead and buy now! All Judaism.com wines are Kosher. They stock delicious table wines, kiddish wines, dessert wines, sparkling wines, cooking wines and even wine gift sets.
