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.
