Every year we promote the organisations in our community that offer personalised greeting services in lieu of Rosh Hashana gifts for family and friends.
This year we do the same, but the context is slightly different. Not only will we not be having large gatherings as we usually do, but many of our communal organisations are really struggling during lockdown to provide the services we have been accustomed to receiving.
Perhaps in place of the big dinners and other associated costs of the holiday, those of us who can, could channel some funds into these worthwhile causes.
For those who usually use these e-card services, please continue. For those who don’t, please consider adding your support this year.
Every bit helps.
