Rosh Hashanah and indeed many moments in Jewish life would not be complete without the sound of the Shofar – as we hear this note we reflect on the meaning and origin of the Shofar as well as its significance to Jewish life and the world we wish to create – a healthier, more equitable, more sustainable world for all.
Warm thanks go out to Hazon staff, board, and stakeholders for making this work possible.
Thank you to Rabbi Felicia Sol & to B’nai Jeshurun for suggesting that we make this video.
