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.

RITES BRING CALL TO CHILDREN OF ISRAEL: In the traditional religious rites yesterday of Rosh-Ha-Shana, marking the first day of the Jewish New Year, Rabbi Isaak Goldman of the Beth Israel Congregation blows the ram's horn as a reminder to the Children of Israel that once they received the Ten Commandments upon Mount Sinai. The horn's call is to remind Jews of the World they should observe all of the laws of the Lord. Shawls and scarfs are worn in the orthodox services to bring uniformity to the worshipping costumes, and the hats and caps are in keeping with the covered head ordained in mourning for the destruction of the temple of Sinai.
