Rosh Hashanah is also a time that Jews celebrate G-d’s creation of the world and embark on personal paths of repentance. You can also test the shofar for its sound quality before purchasing it. Special care has to be taken after blowing the horn.
There are so many Kosher food items that you cannot find in a regular grocery store and unless you live near a specialty store, you have been out of luck. That is until the internet came along and brought the stores right to your living room. These stores have everything from soup to nuts and a lot of special items as well. If you are ordering perishable foods, the shipping will be extra because the need to get them to you fast, but it is so worth it.
To get your guests in this reflective mindset, ask everyone what the sweetest thing they did in the last year was. Then ask them what sweet thing they would like to do this year for another person. If you find this exercise a little too sickly, ask everyone to write their answers on slips of paper and put them in hats during your party. While dessert is being prepared, display the paper strips artfully in the living room.

The other group that differed in this stance of appointment was outraged, the Shiites. They believed that the torch should have been handed down by blood to someone in Muhammad’s family and today, their heritage can be traced back to Muhammad’s daughter, Fatima. Thus, the schism of sects occurred. The Sunnis believed in capability and the Shiites believed in blood when handing down political power and is still used today in Muslim nations.
90% of Muslims are Sunnis and 10% are Shiites. Regardless of the numbers, this does leave room for discrimination. Islamic peoples are deeply rooted with their religion, for example: suicide bombers dying for their faith because they believe it will take them to Paradise. Sunnis view Shiites as heretics and in Saudi Arabia; Shiites are powerless and retain absolutely no rights. This creates a problem. Other Arab countries with Sunni majorities have followed suit.
Another trick of the trade is to cover the finished horn with lacquer to give the horn that beautiful shine, make it stronger, and hide those small defects. But the lacquer finish changes the sound of the shofar, again rendering it non-kosher.
