The blowing of the shofar is a key moment in the Rosh Hashanah service, and this year local residents will take up the call (literally) to make sure their neighbors experience the moment — even if they’re sheltering at home.
Rosh Hashanah begins in the evening this Friday, September 18 and ends on the evening of Sunday, September 20. The shofar event is set for Sunday at 4 p.m. from 64th Street to Columbia University on Broadway, with at least 23 shofar-blowers getting involved. The list of locations is in this document.
Several local synagogues are participating in the effort, including Ansche Chesed, a member there told us. Thanks to Jeff Segall, who will be blowing the shofar on 92nd and Broadway, for the tip.
