We are often afraid of creating space for silence out of fear of what might emerge. On Rosh Hashana, the shofar creates that silence for us through its piercing sound. But it’s still up to us to listen to the voice within.
On Rosh Hashana, the shofar rouses us from the depths of our being to commit to a new path, to reorient our maps, to change our behaviors. It is the ultimate call to action.
