New Year pop-up greeting card, Printed in Germany, 1906-1913, Cardboard
From the exhibition  Each Year Anew: A Century of Shanah Tovah Cards

Every year brings its blessings

100 years of New Year greetings

A tent camp for new immigrants, the building of the Tel Aviv port, Hebrew labor, and the great migration to the United States; the images from the New Year cards created and circulated during the 20th-century throughout Europe, the United States and Israel, tell the dramatic story of the Jewish people throughout this century.
The illustrated New Year letters from the late 19th century that preceded cards are on display at the exhibition. New Year posters, designed by artist David Tartakover in the '90s, in response to social and political events in Israel, create a fascinating dialogue with the traditional greetings.
Starting on 19 August.
