new music monday, rosh hashanah edition

21 Sep

this past friday marked the beginning of the jewish high holiday of rosh hashanah. i’ll post more tomorrow about how we are trying to celebrate the holidays and our family’s jewishness (it’s a word, i don’t care what you say.)

let’s keep it short and sweet today by just singing our song.

this one is a favorite in our house. “i like to hear the shofar blast” is a fun song for the kids since they get to make silly sounds like the shofar.

my little dude helped me a little & we got a standing ovation off-camera from little lady james when we were done.

l’shana tova!

    We have a teachable moment (if fleeting) to tell the story of Shofar. Its influence on prayer and its historical antecedents going back to the Temple sacrifices.

    Wow, you are a great singer. You must’ve been a songleader.

    Just sung that song this weekend.

    Shanah Tovah!

    Aw, man…I’m jealous. Lutherans don’t have anything like a shofar. Not sure a pipe organ is all that good at blasting like a shofar. Maybe if we could play it like Stevie Wonder or Parliament!
