Rosh Hashanah- a great time to make political jokes? In this 20th century post card, the head of the rooster used for kapparot is substituted by the face of Tsar Nicholas of Russia. Apart from celebrating the Jewish new year, this card is an alert to any anti-semitic leader that this is where he/she might end up!
