Want to hear the shofar on Rosh Hashanah but can’t make it to services? We got you! All are welcome (adults, young professionals and children) to join and listen to Judaism’s ancient sounds of the shofar.

The Jewish people have been blowing the shofar, a simple hollowed out ram’s horn, for thousands of years in celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Intrinsically, the shofar is not just a sound. It is a cry. A prayer. A soul-awakening, personal, meditative and rousing experience. Hearing the sound of the shofar is the essential precept associated with celebrating the holiday and the New Year.

Outdoors and socially distanced in Copley Square by the fountains. The shofar service will be approximately 10 minutes. Shana tova!
