By RABBI SAMUEL FOX

A variety of reasons have
been offered for the prac-
tice of blowing the shofar
on Rosh Hashana. Basi-
cally, Rosh Hashana is char-
acterized in the Bible as a
"day of blowing" (Numbers
29:1). Rav Saadia Gaon
gave 10 reasons for blowing
the shofar. One reason is
that blowing the shofar ac-
knowledges that we believe
in the fact that the Al-
mighty is king over all the
universe. Just as the arriv-
al of a king is heralded by
blowing trumpets to an-
nounce the presence of the
Almighty with the sound of
the shofar. This indicates to
us that there is authority in
this world and that when
we act without authority we
transgress.
A second reason is that
the shofar is a call to repen-
tance. It is a reminder to
us that we have obligations
and have been remiss in
keeping them. A third rea-
son is that the shofar was
the instrument blown at
Sinai during the Revelation
that took place there: It
thus reminds us of the base
of our obligations.
A fourth reason is that
the shofar reminds us of
the prophets whose inspired
messages came to us like a
blast of the shofar. This re-
minds us•of the continuous
communication that exists
between the Almighty and
man. It also teaches us that
the lack of communication
is responsible for a strain
in the relationship between
the human and-the Divine.
A fifth reason explains
the broken notes as so.unds
which symbolize the broken

pieces of the Temple in Je-
rusalem. This stimulates us
to pray for its reconstitu-
tion. It may also represent
the broken lives of sinners
and our prayer for mending
those lives.
A sixth reason relates the
blowing of the shofar on a
ram's horn as symbolizing
the ram that Abraham used
as a substitute for his son
Isaac at the altar. It thus re-
1minds the Almighty of the
willingness of Abraham to
sacrifice his son and of
Isaac's willingness to be
sacrificed—deeds whose vir-
tues are used in order to so-
licit the mercy of the Al-
mighty in our own judg-
ement.
A seventh reason con-
tends that the shofar repre-
sents the broken hearts of
the worshippers signifying
the sense of humility with
which we must approach
the Almighty. An eighth rea-
son advances the belief that
the shofar injects a mood of
serious thought and in-
trospection.
A ninth reason looks upon
the shofar as a symbol of
hope for the future because
the era of the grand return
of the Jewish people to a
fully constituted Holy Land
and Temple in Israel is to
be heralded by a blast from
the shofar.
A 10th reason, in this
same vein of thinking, as-
serts that the shofar is
blown because the coming
resurrection of the dead
will be heralded by the
notes of the shofar. Sin has
often been compared to
death and forgiveness has
been likened to resurrec-
tion.
Others have commented
that the shofar's sound iS a
most primitive and basic
one. This teaches us to re-
ject the superficial coloring
which taints men's souls
and return to the basic un-
derstanding of one's heart.
It reawakens one's in-
nermost feelings of honesty.
Some have maintained
that the mysterious sound
of the shofar gives us the
feeling that somewhere
there is someone who cares
and who is accessible. i.e..
the Almighty.

A happy and healthy
New Year
to all our relatives and friends
