What is the Shofar?

The Shofar is a ritual ram’s horn. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is announced and celebrated in a humble and determined manner, by the blowing of the Shofar. 

The sound of the Shofar was used to alert people to physical challenges (e.g., military assaults). On Rosh Hashanah, it alarms people to spiritual challenges, while paving the potential road to salvation. It serves as a wake-up call to the necessity of cleansing one’s behavior.

The Shofar represents “peace-through-strength,” as demonstrated by the peaceful ram, which is equipped with powerful and deterring horns.
