Greeting Card Alert
One way of showing your Jewish friends and relatives that you respect them and the Jewish religion is to send greeting cards at the appropriate times. Jewish New Year cards are now available in most greeting card shops. Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) falls on September 20 th this year. Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) is on September 29 th . October 4 th begins Succoth or the Feast of Tabernacles.
It is not necessary to send three cards. A New Year’s card will suffice. We do not recommend that you enclose Christian tracts with your greeting cards. It is best to send any Christian material you have at another time.
As for those of us Jews who believe in Yeshua, we are celebrating too. We rejoice not merely for the religious new year (5751) that is upon us. We are thankful because we have a new life forevermore through Yeshua’s once-for-all-time atonement for us. Because of that, we also rejoice that our temporary earthly residences—whether they be shacks or manses—will soon fade into insignificance as we dwell forever in the place he has gone to prepare for us.
