Guest column: Shofar squad event today

By Olga Worm

Our Sisterhood is donating beautiful Shofars to every student in our Torah School.   We will be presenting the Shofars to our students during Torah School today , October 5.

I will be teaching students in each class from 4-5:30 p.m, and from 5:30-6 p.m, we will have a lovely formal presentation.

Please join me in this special mitzvah at 4 p.m. in the school if you would like to assist and see the students try the Shofars for the first time.

Or, come at 5:30pm in the sanctuary to be in the photos and to personally present a Shofar to a child in our school, and hear them all blow together.

Please bring your spouses, children, grandchildren, friends and other congregants to make it a big celebration.

I would love for the entire Sisterhood Board and all Sisterhood members to be present for this important occasion.  Men’s Club President Bill Sperling has invited  Men’s Club members to come too.

I have arranged for several reporters, photographers, video, etc.  Our Rabbi and Cantor will be there, along with some synagogue board members.

We have also invited the parents of the students and our Shofar Squad members to participate.

All of the students will bring their Shofars and be called up for the sounding of the Shofar at the end of Yom Kippur!
