Heeding the Call of the Shofar: The Iconic Sound of the Jewish High Holy Days
Thursday, October 6th at 6:30 PM
For centuries the tradition of blowing the shofar has been used to deepen, expand and enhance the meaning and power of the holiest days of the Jewish year. Come learn about this ancient instrument: its biblical roots and its use in modern liturgy and practice. Hear it sounded in ways old and new, from the walls of Jericho to contemporary jazz clubs!
