Rosh Hashanah: Shofar Callin’

Recommended for all ages

Shofar Callin’ connects the story Jews read on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year – when God tells Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac – with the ritual blowing of the Shofar, or ram’s horn.

What’s the connection? Find out how the Jewish New Year is WAY more than just a day to spend in synagogue, and how the call of the Shofar can be spiritually meaningful in your daily life. Written and delivered in hard-hitting rhyme by rising Savannah hip hop artist Prodezra Beats, this G‑dcast will have you bumping into the new year in no time!

Shana tova! Happy New Year!
