For too long, Sukkah walls have been devoid of Jewish Heroines. The seven Ushpizin (all men) have been very common themes of sukkah decorations, and the custom of hanging pictures of prominant Rabbis is also popular in certain circles. While there is an Ushpizot poster available for sale, and other similar works of art created over the years, we are aware of no other “women Rebbes” poster available for purchase.
A group of young women artists met to discuss potential muses for the project, and were each paired up with a scholar to learn more about, connect with and ultimately depict. The finished works are stunning, and we are proud to be able to bring all six works together on a single unifying poster. The poster is made tough to withstand many years of rainy weather in your sukkah, while also highlighting the stunning imagery of the portraits.

Jewish Zodiac Placemat
by Seth Front
Common saying: “What am I, chopped liver?” Well, Jewish astrological experts now say there’s a 1-in-12 chance that you are!
This year’s favorite novelty: the Jewish Zodiac Placemat is a knockoff of the placemat you see in most Chinese restaurants — you know, the Year of the Ox, Year of the Dragon, Year of the Republican, etc. Find what kind of animal you are, and who you’re compatible with, marry them, and live happily ever after.
Well, we Jews don’t so much do animals as we do food. So here we have the Year of the Latke, the Year of the Bagel, the Blintz, even Pastrami, Pickle, and Chicken Soup. So you might not be chopped liver. But you’d best still watch out for compatibility issues. If you are a Pastrami, maybe you shouldn’t get too romantic with a blintz.

MASORTI AGITPROP! — If you've been in Israel recently, you've probably seen this poster (in Hebrew) on buses, bus shelters, and walls. Kinda hits you over the head: scholars of Jewish law should be connected with the real world.
The Masorti Movement has now made it available in English. It's a great conversation-starter in a classroom, in a sukkah, or anywhere else. 50% of profits will go to support the Masorti Movement in Israel.

Seasoned With Song
original songs written and performed by Julie Auerbach
When my daughter Ruth was about 3 or 4, there was no greater celebrity in her life than Julie Auerbach, who wrote and sang these Jewish songs in concerts, schools, and parties. What a thrill to see the great diva in a movie theater!
Years later, “Seasoned With Song” is now available in CD format. These are [mostly] English-language songs for the entire holiday cycle — from Rosh HaShanah through Shavuot — as well as a few more general songs that Julie used for concert warmup.
Some are truly outstanding. I especially love her songs for Rosh HaShanah and Purim; and I still use her calendar march to remember the order of the Jewish months — sure beats “30 Days Hath September.”
