Shana Tova cards are a souvenir of times when communication was far more difficult. Receiving a card from friends and family far away was a major family event. However with the development of more efficient communication devices such as telephones, the internet and mobile phones, the popularity of Shana Tova cards has declined.The National Library of Israel collects Jewish memories and traditions and has also accumulated a large collection of Shana Tova cards that document the life of the Jewish people in the Diaspora and in Israel.

The National Library is invested in facilitating and advancing a meaningful, challenging and enjoyable learning experience that will instill students with knowledge and skills based on the study of the Library's collections, among others – an experience that will strengthen teachers, students, families and educational organizations. Our pedagogic philosophy is that the intelligent use of primary sources allows for the reinforcement and deepening of the connection between the students and their history, culture and heritage, and strengthens the skills and qualifications required for the 21st century student. The Library works to implement its educational goals via a number of significant actions – the establishment of a database of primary documents for teaching and learning, providing access to tools and activities, training teaching staff and educators and the establishment of informal educational programming for families and schools.
