Jewish Federation & Foundation and the Rockland Board of Rabbis are collaborating so that everyone can hear the stirring sound of the shofar to welcome the new year.

The attached schedule shows dates and locations of shofar blowing, beginning on Rosh Hodesh Elul and continuing through the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

At each location, the shofar blowing will take place at 9:00 am, and we request arrival between 8:45 and 9:00 am.

There will be volunteers to greet and direct cars on arrival. Community members will be reminded to wear masks, remain 6 feet apart 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.
