shofar in the public garden
Want to hear the shofar on Rosh Hashanah but not able to make it to services in the morning?

The Public Garden.
at the George Washington Statue
The Jewish people have been blowing the Shofar, a simple hollowed out ram’s horn, for thousands of years in celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
Intrinsically, the Shofar is not just a sound. It is a cry. A prayer. A soul-awakening, personal, meditative and rousing experience. Hearing the sound of the shofar is the essential precept associated with celebrating the Holiday.
No RSVP required but appreciated so we can plan accordingly.
