The following was submitted by Director Miriam Labkowski:
Children at Chabad Hebrew School and others joined to learn the process of Shofar making Sunday at .
Rabbi Dovid Labkowski explained that a Shofar must be from a ram or any Kosher animal excluding a cow. He showed the children the raw horn with the cartilage inside, he then removed the cartilage, cut the horn and blew the freshly-fashioned shofar.
The children sawed, sanded and polished their own Shofar at this program to take home as their very own souvenier for the Jewish new year.
They also learned the inner significance of the shofar blowing. Each child walked away with their own shofar and hugh a smile on their face.
The Shofar Factory is one of the many Hands-on programs which Chabad offers to the Jewish community, giving children the do-it-yourself experience- and a fun hands-on approach to the holidays.
