Learn what a Shofar is, where it comes from, and what purpose it serves; watch as volunteers help drill, saw and sand a ram’s horn and make it into a usable Shofar. Then, try it yourself! Each participant in the Shofar Factory will get to saw, sand, and polish their own Shofar to take home. There is also an option of making a keychain out of the sawed off tip.
