Our Rubber Chicken Jewish New Year Cards say, "Hooray, today is one of the holiest days of the year" unlike any other card on the internets! Time to blow the Shofar, let go of the past, clean the house, and eat and drink until you are sated.
Rosh Hashana's one of the most fun days of the year for Jewish people all around the world! And it is also the beginning of a profound search into the soul. How can those two things go together?! Quite well, thank you. It is this day that the three books of account are opened, wherein the fate of the wicked, the righteous, and those of an intermediate class are recorded. Those that don't pass this test have ten days to get there act together, make amends (not necessarily to God but to those they have offended) and then they too will be sealed in the book of life.
In addition to introspection on this day, Jewish people also get to eat traditional foods. We especially look forward to apples and honey, the head of a fish (the head of the new year, get it?!), dates and pomegranates, not to mention the hip-hop music legends, The Black Eyed Peas! Who preform their hit, "One Tribe", which they wrote to commemorate Rosh Hashana, this time every year...ah, just a moment, um, excuse us, we're getting a call, sorry about this, we'll just be a sec...
So that call was from our rabbi, and it turns out she's a HUGE fan of the Black Eyed Peas too, and she just clarified that Jewish New Year IS celebrated with the black-eyed peas, but not the America's-favorite-rapping-sensation kind, no, instead, we celebrate with the LEGUMES! So, we stand corrected, and look how we all learned something new and important today! Mazel tov!
If any of this made you smile, please take a moment to send one of our Rubber Chicken Jewish New Year eCards to your loved ones! And may your New Year be a time of renewed strength, good health and may you surround yourself with those who love you deeply. L'Shanah Tovah Tikatevu, ya'll!
