Shofar in the Park

Shofar in the Park

  • We’ve been tooting our own horn for over 3000 years.

    And we’re pretty good at it.

    We Jews have been blowing the Shofar, a simple hollowed out ram’s horn, for thousands of years in celebration of Rosh Hashana, or the Head of the Year – also known as the birthday of humanity.

    A blast from the past.

    The frequencies and vibrations that emanate from the horn are of ancient formulation and have been blown by Jews in thousands of cities around the world, in times of both peace and persecution.

    Sweet toot.

    Their precise sequence of short, medium and long blasts, and their combination of both bass and treble, are known to have positive personal, global and cosmic effect.

    Happy New Ear!

    No two people experience the Shofar in the same way. Some hear a battle cry, calling them to action. Others recall the innocence of their youth. Some hear a victory blast, that "Yes, I can overcome my obstacles." Others are freed from the painful tears they never dared cry. Some remember home. Others that it’s time to roam.

    Sound of Silence.

    The simple note of the Shofar is a silent cry from the soul. An invitation to find yourself - or lose yourself. At Shofar in the Park we will capitalize on the message of the Shofar, and usher in the New Year with a transformative meditation

    Not coming to a theater near you.

    Shofar in the Park will happen once: Monday, October 3 rd at the Bandshell in Prospect Park between5:30 and 6pm . It won’t be broadcasted, rebroadcasted, or podcasted.

    In fact, according to ancient prescription, one must hear the blasts directly from the Shofar itself. It’s a "you-had-to-be-there" kind of a moment.

    Toot us a Horn.
