Card competition

Naomi’s inspired design

With so many amazing entries for The AJN annual Rosh Hashanah card competition, it was hard to choose a shortlist, let alone a winner! Well done to everyone who submitted an entry.

The AJN wishes a hearty mazal tov to Naomi Zohar of Kesser Torah College in Sydney, who has won our Rosh Hashanah card competition.

Zohar’s fantastic artwork beat a plethora of worthy entries to take out this year’s prize.

She told The AJN the artwork took around a day to complete.

“The design was based on a park close to my home. It has a beehive in the tree and we can smell the honey when we go to the park,” she said.

“During lockdown, we spent a lot of time at the park and on Rosh Hashanah the rabbi came and blew the shofar under the trees.

“I wanted to draw that beautiful experience … showing the tzaddikim among the trees.”

AJN national editor Gareth Narunsky lauded the high quality of this year’s field of entries, from children ranging in age from four to 12.

“So good were the artworks we received this year that is was hard to compile a shortlist, let alone pick the overall winner,” he said.

“Well done to all the kids who so enthusiastically took up the challenge, you all did a marvellous job.

“And of course, a special mazal tov to Naomi for her winning design!”
