Shofar Blowing Lessons

Sam Gilston lead the first of two workshops on how to blow a shofar. The first session held Sunday, August 23 included an explanation on the rituals and liturgy associated with blowing the shofar during Elul, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The second session is scheduled for Sunday, August 30, at 1:00 pm. Our goal, if possible, is to have someone in each family able to blow a shofar during services so everyone can perform the mitzvah of hearing the shofar during the holidays.

If you are interested, Sam will send you supporting information before the workshop. To participate, send Sam Gilston an email: sgilston@comcast.net

Sam is also willing to Zoom privately with individuals after the workshops if they need more help.
