I have been busy with a few custom orders.
Clockwise, from top right, a birthday card for a Manchester United fan, who also goes to taekwondo and plays basketball; 'Happy Birthday Mom' - a pretty card requested for a wonderful Mum; 'Mazal Tov on Your Barmitzvah' for the same birthday boy who will shortly be celebrating his Barmitzvah. I have shown the Barmitzvah boy holding a torah scroll, his siddur, a Jewish prayer book containing a set order of daily prayers, and wearing his tallit or prayer shawl; Top left is a birthday card for his sister who loves reading to the local kids.
Early next week my family and I will be celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah is the first of the High Holidays or Yamim Noraim ("Days of Awe"), the most solemn days of the Jewish year, which conclude with the holiday of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. I would like to wish you all a very happy new year - 'Shana Tova Tikosevu' ('May you be inscribed for a good year!').
