Shofar: A Call to Return
- 1 hr 7 min 25 sec
This is one class in a series entitled, "Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur Davening: Open the Gates!" available for FREE at http://Naaleh.com. Rabbi Taubes discusses the significance of the Shofar that is blown during the Rosh HaShanah davening. The shofar is a wake up call to renew ourselves and re-examine our unique potential at the start of a new year. Though it is a mitzvah like any other, there is also an emotional aspect that is ingrained in the act of the mitzvah, which forces every person to be alone with his inner thoughts as the shofar is sounded.
