Sounding the shofar


Etta Goldstein at Horizon Bay holds the shofar, as Pat Rubenstein serves apples and honey and Debbie Meitin leads Rosh Hashanah services.

In synagogues across the nation, a shofar (ram’s horn) is blown during the Jewish New Year. The Jewish Pavilion is an outreach organization that ensures that Jewish seniors in 54 long-term care facilities in Orlando get to experience the Jewish holidays and hear the shofar. The shofar is the quintessential symbol of Rosh Hashanah that calls for the awakening of the slumbering soul. Hearing the shofar reminds our elders of their precious heritage.
