Shana Tovah! Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. We blow the shofar (ram’s horn), eat apples and honey as well as a ton of other food (like on all other Jewish holidays). Copywriter Nina Mozes offers tips for how to celebrate the first day of the new year with a thoughtful card.
Turns out, it’s pretty impossible to write a Jewish card without being stereotypically Jewish.
Happy New Year. May this year make you feel like complaining only a little bit.
That’s the card I’ll be giving my parents. Here’s the one I expect from them:
Happy New Year. Maybe this year will be a good year and you’ll make lots of money. And then you can move out of the house, marry a nice doctor and give us grandchildren.
If that’s too over-the-top for you, try a punny joke:
A congregation member walks into synagogue and asks the rabbi, “How is your New Year going?” The rabbi replies, “Shofar, sho good.
Thanks. That one’s all me.
(Look, I admit it’s not Torah-fic. I know better than to gefilte fish for a compliment.)
Have a happy and a healthy!
