When I was growing up, we used to receive tons of Rosh Hashanah cards in the mail. All year long, it was something neat that I looked forward to. As they came in, I saved each one and then taped them together into a huge collage. This tradition was started by my Grandmother who encouraged everyone else to carry it on.
Nowadays, with text and email, so few people actually have the time or interest to send paper cards. Any “Happy New Year” greeting is appreciated, but there is something much more special about opening the mail box and finding a surprise waiting there.
So, instead of just wishing and waiting for it to happen, I want to start. If any of my dear readers would like a personalized card for the High Holidays, I would be very happy to add your name to my list. Just leave a comment or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you shortly.
