Every year, Israel issues a set of stamps for the fall holidays.

Last year, for example, stamps featured children celebrating Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot.

This year, for the first time, the stamps focus on that least photogenic of Jewish holidays, Yom Kippur.

The three stamps feature scenes from one of the most memorable of Yom Kippur’s liturgical poems, which compares God’s control over our fate to the work of a craftsman — variously a potter, a glazier, and a silversmith.
