Shofar in the Park
A Moment at the Monument.
Don’t live in the echo. Live in the blast.
158 years: Riverside Park.
391 years: New York City.
5,775 years: Shofar blowing.
Riverside Park. A ram’s horn.
Where is this going?
Some things are made to (b)last.
The Jewish New Ear.
New Yorkers: Escape the honking for some blowing.
Join us in the park for a moment of noise.
Shofar is not so far.
A Blast from The Past.
Your grandfather blew it.
Rosh Hashana 2017 • Thursday, September 21 • 5-6 PM
Soldiers and Sailors Monument • Riverside Park NYC
We’ve been tooting our own horn for over 3,300 years.
And we’re pretty good at it.
We’ve been blowing the Shofar, a simple hollowed out ram’s horn, for thousands of years in celebration of Rosh Hashana, or the Head of the Year – also known as the birthday of humanity.
This September 30th, duck out of the New York City hubbub for an hour of refuge at the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park. Return to a simpler, more essential state, together with fellow New Yorkers. Hear the stirring, unadulterated blasts of the Shofar as we reflect on our collective birthday. And walk away with a message that you were carrying all along.
