the sound of the shofar – le’shona tova

May the blast of the shofar bring with it a calling to consciousness, and a sense of cleansing, purifying, cleaning out – a readiness to move forward into the fresh new year.

Shana – Year – is related to the Hebrew word for change.
Chodesh – the word for month – is related to the Hebrew word chadash, new.

Even the word shniya, second, is related to shana, year, and change. We have the opportunity for change with each year, with each month, and even with each second.
May the blast of the shofar bring positive change.

Wishing everyone a sweet new year,

Ellen Tobe
