Happy Nowruz, Nowruz Piruz. Israeli greeting for Nowruz.

Last year Rabbi Abraham Gisser* published a Nowruz Greeting for the Iranian people in Thamar E. Gindin’s blog. I’ve helped Thamar translate it to Persian, and designed this graphic greeting, which is made of Iranian elements, that create a shape similar to Magen David.
