Design the US Chesed Rosh Hashanah Card!

Each year US Chesed produces 2,000 beautiful Rosh Hashanah cards which are distributed, along with a honey cake, to older members of our community and people who have had a difficult year. This small gesture means a great deal for the recipients, ensuring that all those in our community feel cared for at this special time of year.

This year one lucky winner will have the chance for their very own card design to be used as the official US Chesed Rosh Hashanah card for 2024/5785!

We are asking for entries from children in Reception – Year 6 (ages 4 – 11). The design can be created using any materials you wish but should fit onto an A4 portrait piece of paper and be flat. The final design will be shrunk down to an A6 (postcard) sized card.

The winner will have their design transformed into the official Rosh Hashanah card for 2024, and will also win a prize!

Please send us a clear photograph of your child’s entry, along with your child’s full name plus the name, contact number and location of the child’s parent/guardian to Entries close on Friday 9th August 2024.
