Shofar Factory

Instructor:

Rabbi Shmuly G. of Chabad Youth Network of Florida

Date:

Pre Rosh Hashanah

Workshop Description:

The unique Shofar Factory program provides children with new insights into the significant role of the Shofar during Rosh Hashanah as well as its creation.
This program begins with a brief discussion about Shofarot, using stuffed animal heads, and various horns as visual aids. The highlight of the Shofar Factory is the actual crafting of a Shofar from the raw horn of a ram into a simple, yet beautiful, instrument. Children have the opportunity, to saw, drill, polish, and shellac the horn to create a genuine kosher Shofar. They are taught how to sound the Shofar following the traditional sequence of notes blown on Rosh Hashanah.
