ROSH HASHANAH EDITION
SECTION D PAGE 13
LOS ANGELES — In preparation for the High Holidays last year, my community sent its shofar blower on the road.
During the month of Elul, in the run-up to Rosh Hashanah, we are supposed to hear the shofar blown every day except Shabbat. Traditionally this is done in shul.
But our small, lay-led congregation does not meet on weekdays. So my wife, Brenda, who blows the shofar for the Movable Minyan, as our congregation is called, offered to visit member’s homes to perform the ritual there.
“It will be more personal,” I remember her saying.
