Rosh Hashannah

The verse reads,"Proclaim liberty throughout the land and to all the inhabitants therein," (Vaykra25:10), a reference to the Yovel, or Jubilee Year. In the time of the Beit Hamikdash, the Yovel came once every 50 years, and at that time slaves were set free and the land returned to its original owners. The shofar declared the Yovel, as it does Rosh Hashannah. The view of Yerushalayim and shofar blowers is surrounded by other symbols of Rosh Hashannah, the pommegranate and fish, two symbolic foods eaten on the holiday.(papercut size: approx. 22" wide x 15" high) R001
