Commemorate the Reverence of Rosh Hashanah with Cards from American Greetings

Cleveland, OH, Sept. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — There are many ways to celebrate the Jewish High Holiday season. Sounding of the shofar (the ram’s horn used during ceremonies), preparing special foods, and attending religious services are a few examples – and they all share the common thread of helping inspire deeply meaningful connections. Whether it’s bonding with family over warm wishes for a peace-filled year or developing a deeper appreciation for cultural traditions by including new friends in the festivities, American Greetings has the perfect card to connect with all the important people in your life.

This year’s High Holiday season begins with the start of Rosh Hashanah, or Jewish New Year, at sundown on Wednesday, September 20 and culminates with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, on Saturday, September 30.

The American Greetings selection of Rosh Hashanah cards includes both new designs and perennial favorites that reflect the solemn, introspective nature of the holiday. The diverse collection embraces tradition with cards highlighting classic Jewish iconography; appeals to younger consumers with designs featuring updated colors and artwork; and pairs warm copy with content suitable for a broad range of relationships to help share greetings of health, happiness and prosperity with loved ones.

Complementing the paper card collection available at your favorite retailer, a variety of digital cards that also convey the importance of the long-standing customs during this blessed time of year are available on AmericanGreetings.com. Wish friends and family “L’shanah tovah,” or a “good new year,” via email or social media with these convenient digital options.

Consumers can find these Rosh Hashanah products, in addition to a great selection of inspiring cards from American Greetings, at participating drug chains, grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide, as well as in American Greetings and Carlton Cards retail stores.
