Shofar 101

Thanks to my brain not working I forgot people may not know what a Shofar is (thanks S). Here is the Wikipedia information (with a great photo of one) to give the significance of the item to Rosh Hashana and Yom Kipppur.

Thursday night my grandmother gave NHL this:

It’s a seemingly harmless plastic shofar for kids. Uncle I and Aunt M had given him one in the past. He loves them, but man can it be LOUD and annoying.

Here is a video of NHL using his shofar as JL says the calls that they do when they sound the shofar:

So that is the beautiful shofar. Next Saturday evening after Yom Kippur there is a service where I believe there will be at least 6 shofars out in all area of our synagogue. They sound together and it’s an amazing experience.
