Decorate your Sukkah—or Synagogue or Classroom Wall
Masorti's creative "Yellow Pages" poster/ad campaign cataloguing the livelihoods of Talmudic sages caught the attention of Jerusalemites and the Israeli press as public attention in Israel focused on government stipends for full-time yeshiva students.
Now available as a poster in English through Haggadahs-R-Us, (shown below) it is a terrific conversation-starter for classrooms, in your sukkah or just about anywhere you gather with friends and family.
50% of the profits from the poster sales will go to support the Masorti movement in Israel.
$11.95 for 18"x 23.5" full-color laminated poster
$8.95 each for 2 or more copies; bulk rates available.
Shipping additional: $3.41 for 1 or 2 copies, via USPS Media Mail.
