THE EARLIEST AND LARGEST numbers of Jewish picture postcards were created for Rosh Hashanah greetings. The Jewish custom of sending written messages of good wishes on the eve of the New Year developed in medieval Germany when Rabbi Jacob of Moellin, known as the Maharil (c. 1360–1427), recommended that during the Hebrew month of Elul one should include wishes for a good year in all written correspondence. This custom spread widely throughout the Ashkenazic world.
