5:00 PM - 5:05 PM

We are excited to be a co-sponsor (along with about three dozen other local organizations) of The Blast, an opportunity for the Washington Jewish community to welcome Rosh Hashanah with city-wide shofar blasts.

People will blow the shofar from locations around the city at 5:00 pm on September 18th, right before Rosh Hashanah begins. Just walk outside your house with your shofar and sound the shofar as best or as loud as you can! The sound of the shofar will reverberate around the city as we awaken to the coming of a new year, and it will remind us that we are all in this together. Join us as a diverse, pluralistic community of Jews comes together to mark this sacred season.
