Shofar blowing in Rockland
The Jewish Federation & Foundation of Rockland County and the Rockland Board of Rabbis are collaborating to ensure that everyone who wants to can hear the sound of the shofar to welcome the new year. Shofar blowing began this morning on rosh chodesh Elul, at Hillel of Rockland, with Rabbi Dov Oliver, and will continue through the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. At each location, the shofar blowing will take place at 9 a.m.; please get there between 8:45 and 9. There will be volunteers to greet and direct cars, and community members will be reminded to wear masks, remain six feet apart from everyone else, and/or stay by their car. Please adhere to the rules of the host synagogue. The first 30 cars will be allowed entry on each day.
