Passover Rubber Stamping Tips


Of all the Jewish holidays, Pesach is the one most commonly observed, even by otherwise non-observant Jews. Pesach begins on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nissan. Passover marks the start of a few agricultural holidays, but the primary observances of Passover is related to the Exodus from Egypt after generations of slavery. "Pesach" comes from the Hebrew root Peh-Samech-Chet , meaning to pass through or to pass over. It refers to the fact that G-d "passed over" the houses of the Jews when he was slaying the firstborn of Egypt.

Here's some ideas to get you stamping your very own Passover cards:
  • matzoh stamps, (square stamps with little dots to look like matzoh)
  • seder plates (round plates with round sections for each of the food types for passover seder). You can use circle shaped stamps for this.
  • Any of the plagues - usually frogs just because they're so darn cute on cards. I can think of a SU! set that has frogs...
  • Grapes/Grapevines
  • Other Fruit (generic for most holidays)
  • A "Passover" word stamp, or combination of letters to spell P-A-S-S-O-V-E-R

Some common sentiments are:

  • Happy Passover
  • Pasover Blessings
  • A wish for you at Passover...
  • Wishing you joy at Passover
