Rosh Hashanah Card Giveaway

As someone who made her wedding invitations on her home computer, I’m not the kind of person who orders professionally made Rosh Hashanah cards. But you? You might be! And if you are, I’ve got a deal for you….

I received an email from asking if I would host a giveaway of their Rosh Hashanah card collection. They send me a few samples (with other people’s kids’ photos on them, mind you) and I thought they were really lovely. Expensive, but very lovely. High class, you might say. (Though you probably wouldn’t say that if you were the kind of person who orders professionally made Rosh Hashanah cards.)


They are printed on a nice, heavy, high quality paper and some truly beautiful designs. Apparently, they held a contest for designs to inaugurate the line this year.My only real complaint is that almost none of the cards have Hebrew on them.

Would you like to win a $100 credit at the Minted store for your Rosh Hashanah cards? All you need to do to enter  is buy a copy of The Shabbat Princess  leave a comment below and share one of your family’s Rosh Hashanah traditions. Because I want these to arrive in plenty of time, this is a quick giveaway. It ends when labor day ends, midnight September 5 (my time, east coast, USA.)

Good luck and Shabbat Shalom!

I’ve never ordered Rosh Hashana cards, but this would be neat!

Love this. We have friends who do photo cards now instead of December – always love it. Maybe this will be the year I embrace a new tradition!

One of our family traditions for Rosh Hashanah is hosting a big lunch for family and friends after services. We make mushroom and barley soup, honey cake, apple salad and all sorts of yummy stuff! Maybe a new tradition can be sending fancy cards from Minted! :-)

We have certain families that come over every year for Rosh Hashanah. By now, it feels like family!

This is my first year not on the pulpit (yikes!) so we are looking for new traditions. I am thinking of making my grandmother’s (z”l) apple cake for breakfast on RH morning. And open to new ideas.

When I was growing up, we’d always eat figs from my parents’ backyard fig tree when enjoying dinner on Rosh Hashana. The tree no longer bears fruit, but we keep the fig tradition!

One of our Rosh Hashanah traditions is dipping apples in honey and making a round challah. My daughters are young so we will probably start adding to these traditions this year.

One of our favorite traditions is opening a new jar of honey from Israel for dipping the apples.

In recent years I’ve been receiving virtual holiday cards, so my new tradition is to post these images to Facebook. It’s like setting up the real cards on the counter or mantelpiece, only more people get to see them!

We love getting a new jar of unusual honey to dip our apPles and enjoy for as long as it lasts on challah on shabbat morning! Yum

We always do a family tashlik service together on the stream behind our house-it just feels really intimate, just the five of us.

We try to have at least two kinds of apples and two kinds of honey. One year we enjoyed honey that I bought on a trip to Greece with my mother.

Beautiful cards! We have the tradition of wanting to send cards and never quite getting to it in time! On a more serious note, I love to bring my kids to shul on Rosh Hashana morning to hear the shofar:)

Since my family lives far from most other family members, we do a honey swap. I send local GA honey to my sisters, and we get honey from both NY and Texas! It makes Rosh Hashana extra sweet!

We are an “interfaith family,” so we have not established any Rosh Hashanah traditions (yet).

I haven’t sent RH cards ever, but for you I will enter this giveaway. Just as long as I don’t have to send cards. :-)
