The Israel Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs has launched an initiative for the Jewish New Year. The "Say Shana Tova" website will allow Jews from around the world to design digital greeting cards with New Year's greetings and send them to Jews around the world. All those who send cards will receive greetings from other Jews around the world. The greetings can be sent in Hebrew, English, Russian, French, Spanish, German or Italian and will be delivered to the recipient via email, translated into his own language.
The "Say Shana Tova" project aims to encourage Jewish youth and adults from around the world to send New Year blessings, thus connecting Jews and Jewish communities around the world, helping them feel that they are part of a great and wonderful story, the Jewish People. The Israeli Ministry of Education will introduce the project in Israeli schools and Jewish organizations and communities around the world will involve students in Jewish schools, connecting them with Jewish students from across the globe.
Yuli Edelshtein, Minister of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs, recently launched the project in a videoconference between sixth grade students in the Judah Halevi School in Jerusalem and students of the Angelo Sacerdoti Jewish Community School in Rome, Italy.
