Spring is here, Passover is coming!

After a few days of rain last week, we have enjoyed beautiful weather here over the last few days. It seems that Spring may well be here and, as the popular Hebrew holiday song, Simcha Raba, goes, "Spring is here, Passover is coming!". Passover is a festival that requires a lot of preparation and we are already well on our way with all the cleaning and organising in our home.
Passover is a popular holiday for gift giving and for sending greetings to your family and friends at home and abroad. This year I have reworked my cards for the holiday and I hope that you like their fresh, clean look.
The new design, which comes in various colourways, shows a Dove of Peace with an olive branch in its beak, hovering near a Star of David. The festival of Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew,  is a celebration of freedom. The holiday commemorates the Jews' exodus from Egypt more than 3,000 years ago  and the Jewish people’s freedom and independence. I hope that the dove and star, all sitting on a Matza (unleavened bread) textured background, represents this in some way.
The cards are available in Hebrew and/or English in packs of three or more. For further information and to make an order, please visit my online shop and prepare to get these cards in the mail to your family and friends soon!
