I want a beautiful way to remember the Jewish holiday dates this year. And keeping track of the Jewish holiday dates is no mean feat! Based on the lunar calendar, our holiday dates change every year. For many years, I relied on a mixture of sources to tell me the dates – including rabbis, Google, friends, and my mom. I did not enjoy the sense of chasing after the dates, always with a slight sense of hurry and worry. That’s why I’m so glad to be able to offer the 5781 Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print to help!
A Beautiful Way to Remember the Jewish Holiday Dates This Year
The 5781 Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print is a beautiful way to remember the Jewish holiday dates this year.
- Do I know when Rosh Hashanah is this year?
- How will I find out the Jewish holiday dates?
- Do I enjoy finding the dates, or is this just another chore on my list?
The Calendar Story
Six years ago, I was living in Cambodia and having that same old Google-spiral experience. Looking up dates for holidays, I got distracted by the ping of a new email, a Facebook notification, an SMS from a friend. Before I knew it, I looked up and one hour had passed. I felt frustrated, unproductive and – worst of all – I still didn’t know the holiday date! This made it clear to me that I wanted my Jewish holiday calendar offline and that I wanted a beautiful way to remember the Jewish holiday Dates that year, and every year.
I decided to create the thing I wanted and needed, a beautiful Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print, to take my screen-spiral out of Jewish holidays once and for all. With the help of several Orthodox women I was working with at the time, we created a list of 10 holiday dates to feature on our calendar. I tasked some talented designers with creating elegant, meaningful icons to represent each holiday. Before long, our Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print was taking shape.
For the last six years, I have offered this calendar via the Jewish Food Hero shop. But this 5781 Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print is ready for something new…
Leaving my mom’s kitchen table
Now, in the sixth year of our Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print, I am proud of how this simple product has grown in popularity. For the last few years, the build up to Rosh Hashanah has been a busy time for me. As I have coordinated last minute sales, I also took my annual trip to visit my family in Maine. While there, my mom, my husband, my daughter and I would spend long hours packing up calendar orders on the kitchen table!
This year, for the first time since 2013, my mom and I will be able to relax while the organising, packing and sending is taken care of. For the first time, the Jewish Calendar Art Print is available on Etsy. I am so excited about this because I know that these big names make people feel comfortable shopping online, and will make our 5781 Jewish Holiday Calendar available to a wider audience.
Making the Jewish Holidays the Centerpiece of the Home
I noticed something in my own family over the last six years since I started making this calendar. Displaying the Jewish calendar Art Print in the heart of our home keeps the holidays in our minds and hearts. Our calendar is a grounding part of our everyday visual experience.
So many of our basic and essential life activities now revolve around being online. Like many parents, I try to keep a handle on how much time my daughter is spending interacting with screens. Recently, during COVID-19, my daughter was taking a Hebrew class with a Rabbi via Zoom. During the class, the Rabbi asked my daughter if she knew the next holiday. She immediately leapt up from the computer and ran over to our 5780 Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print. It was a sweet moment for me to see that my calendar idea had worked – meaning that the Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print had acted as a beautiful teaching tool that imprinted the Jewish holidays in her mind.
This beautifully designed, high quality printed 5781 Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print is made to be visually beautiful and useful. Essentially, it is a beautiful way to remember the Jewish holiday dates. The Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print can be displayed in your home, school or synagogue, in a place of pride which brings pleasure to those who look at it.
Beautiful Judaica In Our Homes and Synagogues
This Jewish calendar is delicate, visually pleasing, professionally illustrated in a minimalist design and printed with the highest quality laser printing. The calendar creates a link between beauty, art and our Jewish holidays.
If you’d love to have a beautiful Jewish object in your home that makes you feel connected to your Jewish identity, but you haven’t found anything that delights and inspires you yet, take a look at the 5781 Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print.
Your Own Style
The 5781 Jewish Holiday Calendar Art Print uses a neutral color palette so you can style it up or down to your taste. If you like to keep things simple, it would look beautiful in a natural wood frame. Perhaps you like a little more color, in which case you could go for something a little more bold with your styling.
- At home: displayed on the refrigerator held by magnets or in a frame hung on your wall.
- For schools: on a bulletin board as part of an educational display or framed on a shelf where children can see it.
- In synagogues: framed in the entrance area, in the Hebrew school classroom, or in the Rabbi’s office.
The question now is: How will you style yours?
