Shofar So Good: The Spirit and Sound of the Shofar

August 23 @ 7:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until September 13, 2022

Shofar So Good: The Spirit and Sound of the Shofar. 7:30pm on Aug. 23 and 30, Sept. 6 and 13, on Zoom. $36 for members / $54 for non-members.

Join members of Temple Beth El of City Island, Beacon Hebrew Alliance, and Congregation Beth Israel for four weeks of learning about the deep meanings of shofar (and how to blow one, too!) What does Torah teach about shofar? What does Talmud tell us about how to make one? What do our mystics teach about what shofar “does,” spiritually? What do the different sounds represent? Why is the mitzvah to “hear” the shofar rather than to sound it? And more! We’ll learn about shofar in all four worlds of action, emotion, thought, and spirit. There will also be opportunities to practice blowing shofar in-person at each congregation.

$36 for members of TBE, CBI, and BHA; $54 for non-members. If you want to take part and the cost is prohibitive, let the rabbi know. If you do not have your own shofar, you may borrow one from the synagogue (while supplies last.)

Register at the TBE website, yourshulbythesea.org. Meets on Zoom at 7:30pm on Aug. 23 and 30, Sept. 6 and 13.
