Blow Your Own Shofar!!
Daily Shofar-Blowing and Thought for the Day
Each day throughout Ellul (August 21st–Sept 17th) the community has come together. The centrepiece of this daily Zoom event was hearing the blasts of the shofar, together with a short piece of music from the Yamim Noraim, and some inspirational daily ‘Thought for the Day’.
All of the weekday Ellul zooms were recorded and can be heard again here.
If you missed the 'Blow your own Shofar' teaching session, you can watch the recording here:
