Chabad Shofars Galore at Boulder JCC

Hebrew High Teens working diligently on their shofars. Shofar, sho good!

The Boulder JCC was transformed into a full blown shofar factory on Wednesday… going so far as to operate two shifts.  In the late afternoon, families with younger children filled the BJCC gym with noise — sawing, sanding, drilling, laughing, screeching — and eventually some actual tooting of horns.

The evening shift was then manned by Hebrew High teens, sponsored by a generous grant from the Oreg Foundation.  Kudos to Chabad Lubavitch of Boulder, who put on the two programs, which included some history about the shofar, different types of shofars, as well as the hands-on experience of making one.

The Shofar Factory program continues with one more shift on Thursday night, September 13th, also at the Boulder JCC.
