Happy New Year!

Isn’t this a wonderful New Year’s card? Here’s the description:

Under the Imperial Russian coat of arms, traditionally dressed Russian Jews, packs in hand, line Europe’s shore as they gaze across the ocean. Waiting for them under an American eagle holding a banner with the legend “Shelter us in the shadow of Your wings” (Psalms 17:8), are their Americanized relatives, whose outstretched arms simultaneously beckon and welcome them to their new home. Hebrew Publishing Company, between 1900 and 1920. Offset color lithograph postcard.

Happy New Year to all my blog friends at home and abroad.  I hope that the new year brings you many blessings.
