Shofar Corps is an ensemble of students who learn the traditional sounds of the shofar.  They provide a shofar welcome at our L’dor Vador - Rosh Hashanah service.  Periodically they are called upon to provide the unique sound of the shofar for our religious school, holidays and other special occasions.

The sounds you heard when you entered this page were the combined blasts of the horns’ from a Ram, Gemsbok and Kudu pictured below.
