New Year’s Greetings

The following postcards are New Year’s cards in various languages including English, Yiddish, and Hebrew. They depict fun and festive scenes of children marching, communal meals, as well as fairytale-like scenes with fairies and princesses. Most of the postcards contain the words “L’shanah Tova,” Hebrew for “Happy New Year”. In Yiddish, the phrase is pronounced Leshoyne toyve.  These cards were sent and received worldwide and kept family and friends strongly connected.
