WHAT IS A SHOFAR?

A ritual shofar, usually the horn of a ram or kudu, is blown by Jews during the prayer services of Rosh Hashanah and at other specified times. For Synagogue use, the horn must be unblemished and without decoration.

THE SHOFAR SOUND

The wordless sound of the Shofar is like a crying voice or a stifled sob. It utters a wordless call for each person to look within and examine his relationship with G-d and the Divine and to make firm resolution for improvement.

SOURCE OF THE SHOFAR

The first Shofar recorded in the Bible was the ram that the patriarch Avraham brought as a sacrifice, in place of his son Isaac. Ever since the Shofar has been a symbol of Divine mercy and loyalty to G-d.

BLOWING THE SHOFAR

Shofar blowing needs intensive practice in order to perfect the skill. The three ritual sounds of the Shofar, produced in the Synagogue on Rosh Hashanah, are: Tekiah – a long blast, Teruah – nine staccato notes and Shevarim – three broken short sounds. Other notes are a combination of these sounds. The final blast on Rosh Hashonah, and concluding the Yom Kippur fast, is known as a Tekiah Gedolah, a prolonged blast, signifying our hope and prayer for the final redemption.
