Inspired by Rosh Hashana, Children Carve Shofars for Yom Kippur

Naples, Florida

Some 65 children turned out Sunday morning at Chabad Jewish Center of Naples and Marco Island to learn how to craft a shofar.
In addition to heralding the start of the “head of the year,” which is what Rosh Hashana means, the shofar is blasted at the end of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement and fasting.
Using drills, Chabad Rabbi Fishel Zaklos and a score of adult volunteers helped carve out the necessary holes from ram horns imported from Israel so the children could make the shofar emit its plaintive sound, reported Naplesnews.com.
After practicing in a two-hour-long shofar blowing concert, there is no doubt that both children and adults will be prepared for the shofar blasts at the conclusion of Yom Kippur.
