Jewish Holidays Rabbi Neal Borovitz of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation here, sounds the shofar, heralding the arrival of the Jewish High Holidays. The shofar, or Ram's Horn, is an ancient symbol which is blown on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Traditionally, no member of the Jewish household, man or woman, was permitted to taste food at noon on Rosh Hashanah unless he or she had heard the shofar. For people confined to their beds or who are confined to a hospital, the shofar is carried to the sick room and blown in private homes or in the hospital room. The shofar is also blown on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, concluding the Ten Days of Penitence. Yom Kippur begins Friday at sundown.
