It’s Rosh Hashanah! Send this holiday card to the mishpokhe you can’t hug

For more than 500 years, Jews have been sending each other Rosh Hashanah greetings to feel connected, despite the long distances that separated them.

Now that coronavirus has made it difficult, again, to gather in person, the Forward invites you to join us in reviving the tradition of sending and receiving these holiday cards — called shone-toyves in Yiddish.

We hope you like these two cards — send either one, or both. Click here for the story behind the custom, and behind these cards in particular.

There’s lots of different ways you can send them to friends and family.

I hope you appreciated this article. Before you go, I’d like to ask you to please support the Forward’s award-winning, nonprofit journalism during this critical time.

Now more than ever, American Jews need independent news they can trust, with reporting driven by truth, not ideology. We serve you, not any ideological agenda.

At a time when other newsrooms are closing or cutting back, the Forward has removed its paywall and invested additional resources to report on the ground from Israel and around the U.S. on the impact of the war, rising antisemitism and the protests on college campuses.

Readers like you make it all possible. Support our work by becoming a Forward Member and connect with our journalism and your community.

Make a gift of any size and become a Forward member today. You’ll support our mission to tell the American Jewish story fully and fairly.
