The Cry of the Covenant

Understanding the Shofar of Sinai

Rabba Yaffa Epstein

The first time the shofar is mentioned in the Torah is in connection with the giving of the Torah. But - what is the connection between the shofar, and the covenantal moment of Sinai? And what can the shofar teach us about our own relationship to Torah? This session will explore these questions, and attempt to understand how we bring our full selves to both repentance, and Torah study.
