Posted on 20 September 2017

Posted on 14 September 2017

Rabbi Fried, I was invited to a bris at an Orthodox synagogue this past week and they blew the shofar at the end of services. When I asked someone why they’re blowing the shofar if it’s not Rosh Hashanah, they said they blow it every day in the month of Elul. I’ve never heard of […] Continue Reading
