Prepare for the High Holidays with the Call of the Shofar. Throughout the month of Elul, we look forward to sounding the shofar and sharing inspiration with each other. Volunteer to blow shofar or share a prayer with our community.

Submissions will be shared in daily emails Sunday-Friday throughout the month of Elul, beginning August 9. All ages are encouraged to participate and you are welcome to participate in both the shofar and share a prayer. We hope that you will add your voice to our Call of the Shofar to help us usher in a meaningful 5782. Learn more below.

Sound the Shofar
