Learn how to blow the shofar at Congregation Beth Ohr

Plan Schedule Planning Planner Relax Concept / calendar

The approach of the Jewish High Holidays is signaled by the blowing of the shofar (ram’s horn) in the synagogue daily, except on the Sabbath, during the morning service.

Getting the right notes out of a ram’s horn is a skill that few naturally possess, but which can be taught. Beginning Sept. 1, the Men’s Club of Congregation Beth Ohr will give lessons to any man, woman or child of any age who wants to learn. The Men’s Club will furnish the shofars for the lessons.

Instruction will be given during the morning service Sundays, Sept. 1-29. The service runs from 9-9:45 a.m. and is followed by a complimentary bagel breakfast to which all are invited.

For reasons of security, bring photo ID.

Congregation Beth Ohr is at 70 Route 516, Old Bridge. For more information, email Ed Mendlowitz at emcpa1@aol.com.
