In celebration of the Jewish New Year , Herrell’s Ice Cream shop, Thornes Marketplace and Chabad Northampton are sponsoring The Great Shofar Blast on Tuesday, Sept., 17 4:15-5 p.m. at 8 Old South Street, on the corner of The Tuesday Market and Herrell’s.
Participants will learn to blow the shofar, then hear some inspirational teachings about shofar in preparation for Rosh Hashanah. Since the shofar is such a great technology for opening up the heart in preparation for Rosh Hashana the custom is to blow the shofar every day for the whole month of Elul. Then everyone will blow the shofar together for The Great Blast!
After the event everyone with shofar in hand will receive a small free ice cream at Herrell’s after the event!
