Torah Thought

This Shabbat is the first in the Hebrew month of Elul during which, each weekday morning, the shofar is traditionally sounded.  The haunting blasts prepare us for the arrival of Rosh Hashanah and the High Holy Days and proclaim, in the words of our Prayer Book: “Awake, you sleepers, from your sleep! Look closely at yourselves; improve your ways and your deeds!”  As we anticipate the Days of Awe, let us hearken to the sound of the Shofar and be inspired to return to the right path.
