The ram’s horn, in Hebrew shofar, has been a central symbol of Jewish life since Biblical times. The Bible describes many occasions in which the shofar is sounded. As in the above verse, the shofar was blown as a call to war, and also once every 50 years to announce the Jubilee. Today, the shofar is best known as the central aspect of Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) as commanded in the Book of Numbers 29:1, “You shall observe it as a day when the horn is sounded.” More than anything, sounding the shofar continues to serve as a call for prayer and repentance in the Jewish world and beyond. The shofar blasts serve as a connection between worshipers to Hashem and to the Torah.
