Having A Blast In Central Park: Shofar Event Aimed At Unaffiliated

09/26/2011
It's that time of year in New York, when coats come out of closets, leaves turn colors -- and the sound of the ram’s horn echoes through Central Park.
 
On Sept. 29, the first day of the Jewish New Year, Rabbi Yisrael Kugel of Chabad Centers of Manhattan will perform the ritual Rosh Hashannah shofar blowing at the Central Park bandshell. He sees the Biblical instrument as an outreach vehicle uniquely tuned to the ears of the unaffiliated and the disinterested.
