Engage with the shofar to awaken your soul during Elul—the month of spiritual preparation and connection that leads up to the High Holidays.
There is a tradition of sounding the shofar every day of Elul. By engaging in study and spiritual practice around the ritual of shofar, you’ll be empowered to sound your own shofar and fulfill the mitzvah from within your own apartment, while connecting to peers also on a journey of deepening spiritual practice.
Qualified participants will receive your own shofar (while supplies last!) and join in a series of group experiences from hands-on workshops (how to actually blow the shofar) to text-based discussions learning about the laws, spirituality and daily practices associated with this unique ritual object.
