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.

A great poster celebrating seven women visitors to your sukkah, to go along with the traditional seven men. Comes with a gloss on each of the seven: Sarah, Miriam, Devorah, Hannah, Avigail, Huldah, and Esther.

From Ma'yan, the Jewish Women's Project of The JCC in Manhattan.
And if you're wondering why this one is so inexpensive compared to others, it's because it is subsidized by a generous grant!

Vashti-Esther Flag

On Purim, celebrate two heroines
with flags and gentle bells.
This beautiful and colorful new flag honors the voices and brave deeds of Esther and Vashti, the courageous women in the Purim story. Waved in synagogue when Esther's and Vashti's names are read in the Megillah (Book of Esther), the flag's joyous sound rings out as a counterpoint to the jeering groggers (noisemakers) that are heard when the evil Haman's name is mentioned.

NOTE: These are small, tinkly bells — they will NOT drown out the text, unlike the greggors that are used to drown out he-who-must-not-be-named!
