Fewer things mean the High Holy Days more than the voice of the Shofar. Our tradition teaches us to listen to the sound of the Shofar not only on Rosh HaShanah, but on every day in the Hebrew month that leads up to the Jewish New Year, the month of Elul.
Now that Elul has started, our TRT Local 2 of the Ba’al tokay-ah Union Federation of Shofar Blowers are bringing the sound of the Shofar to you virtually from places throughout Marlboro, from our homes and our favorite spots in our town.
Come hear the sound of the Shofar, come prepare for our High Holy Days together.
According to Maimonides, the sound of the Shofar is meant to wake up soul and turn its attention to the important task of teshuvah

Blessing for Sounding the Shofar
Baruch Attah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech HaOlam, Asher Kid’shanu B’mitzvotav, V’tzivanu Lish-MO-ah Kol Shofar
Blessed are you Adonai, Creator of our World, who teaches us to listen to the voice of the Shofar
