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
In secular society, January 1st is the official start of the new year but for Jewish people world wide, Rosh Hashanah marks the new year and new beginnings. For me, Rosh Hashana is one of my very favorite Jewish holidays. It is generally celebrated in September or early October (I can't give you an exact date since the Hebrew lunar calendar is only 354 days verses 365 days in the solar calendar so the days don't line up the same every year. For example, Rosh Hashana 2015 begins on the evening of September 13th whereas next year the holiday starts on the evening of October 2, 2016.) and more or less coincides with the onset of a new school year. Growing up, when we went back to school shopping we also picked up a new Fall outfit for the High Holidays. To this day I buy a school calendar (September – September) rather than the traditional January to January calendar – it is more organic, it is more intuitive. Continue Reading →
