Why Do We Blow The Shofar On Rosh Hashanah?

Why Do We Blow The Shofar On Rosh Hashanah?

I have an article called, “Jupiter Trine Saturn – Ready to Work Hard,” if you would like to read more. I am speaking for generations who came before me and who paid a huge price to be heard. I work for the Los Angeles Unified School District.
As Jews, we are told that on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, “it is written” and on Yom Kippur, the Day of Repentence, “it is sealed.” What is “it”? Our fate for the next year. Where is it written and sealed? In the proverbial Book of Life.

Like the New Year in January, this is the time when Jews call their relatives who live far away. To encourage this tradition, Temple Judea of Tarzana has devised a unique reminder. They have created a fun video using the music from Carly Rae Jepsen’s song “Call Me Maybe”. This video is called “Call Your Zeyde”.

Mix together 1 cup oil, 1 and 1/2 cups sugar, 3 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 cups flour, 3 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. cinnamon. Add milk mixture. Put in bunt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the month of Tishrei, which is one of twelve months in the Jewish Calendar. The uniqueness of the Jewish calendar is characteristic of its importance in observing holidays, festivals and shabbat. Making a Jewish calendar can be a great learning craft for children.

At the bar, stock a couple of hearty red wines. You might also want to make your signature cocktail a warm drink – a hot apple cider perhaps? Or offer the apple cider as a chilled drink while the sun is still up and then offer a hot apple cider as an after dinner treat.

While most craft and discount stores won’t have a ram’s horn handy, there are many other ways to make your crafty wind instrument. For younger children, opt for the paper tube method, a coned birthday party hat. For older children, you may want to try the paper mache method. For the small children, simply shape your tube into a cone or just remove rubber and frills from the birthday hat. Once you have a cone shape, decorate! For more advanced children, take a wavy balloon and cover with paper mache. Once the paper mache dries, pop the balloon with a pin and remove it from the center of the paper mache. Add a cone shaped mouth piece and your child will have a very cleverly fashioned shofar to show and share.

The 1934 Detroit Tigers boasted the greatest infield ever assembled. The foursome missed one game in leading the Tigers to the pennant. They punished American League pitching while playing tight defense behind their pitchers. Their effort played a major role in Detroit’s success and has stood the test of time.
