Shofar, Show Good
The shofar is one of the penultimate expressions of Jewish tradition. In the past it was sounded in times of war as well as to indicate the start of a new month. Today we sound it throughout the month of Elul to help awaken and hearken our hearts to this great and awesome season.
With that in mind, here are a couple of very cute Shofar clips. Enjoy.
