The Shofar Blowing Class
Come learn the art of blowing the SHOFAR and participate in Beth El’s Shofar Service this Rosh Hashanah. It’s easier than you think! All ages are invited to come to this class taught by Chris Hall. Graduates of last year’s program are welcome to join this session for a refresher. Please bring your own Shofar. For more information, please email Rabbi Widzer.
The TBE Shofar Choir is made up of congregants of all ages who learn the art of blowing the shofar (ba’al tekiah) for services throughout the High Holydays. On Rosh Hashana morning, as young children are invited to gather on the floor at the front of the bima, the Shofar Choir, the Holyday vocal quartet, trumpeter James Ross and our Music Director and Organist, Jim Rensink join together to create the majestic music and sounds of the shofar service. Currently there are over twenty children and adults in the Shofar Choir! The Shofar Choir is also part of the Holyday children’s services and the concluding Neilah service on Yom Kippur. Interested congregants of all ages are welcome to join Shofar Choir. A learner’s class takes place in September before the High Holydays. Contact Rabbi Widzer for details on participation.
