Wherever You Are, Blow The Shofar
A Bay Area Shofar Blow-In
Second Day of Rosh Hashanah
Sunday, September 20 @ 3pm
Step outside and sound the shofar to offer your prayers and blessings. Listen for other shofars being blown in your neighborhood.
Also known as a “shofar blow-in” Jewish organizations around the Bay Area and beyond are collaborating by having an event to wake us all up!
The power of the Shofar connects us to our tradition. We are awakened to see the light of the world and ourselves. We are called upon to begin anew, and to do our best as we start another year.
