Senator Kaplan And Rabbis Honor Healthcare Heroes With Shofar Blast For Elul

September 4, 2020

On Thursday, September 3rd, 2020, at 8:50 am, Senator Anna M. Kaplan, Rabbi Tara Feldman and Cantor Adam Davis of Temple Beth-El of Great Neck.

They have joined the executive team, emergency department, nurse managers, nurses, doctors, department directors, and chaplaincy team of North Shore University Hospital for an honorary sounding of the shofar in an offering of prayers, hope, and encouragement for the healthcare heroes at NSUH, Northwell Health, and the greater community.

This was part of a project called “Renewal in Elul” undertaken by Temple Beth-El to be a community-oriented spiritual “wake up” call and a way to honor those in our community who give so much of themselves.

Senator Anna Kaplan and Temple Beth-El Blast the Shofar in Honor of Nassau’s Healthcare Heroes:

Elul is the 12th and final month in the Jewish calendar. It is a month that connects the past year with the coming year, and as such, it is a time for reflection. During the month of Elul, it is customary to blow the shofar (ram’s horn blasts) every morning to “wake up” and prepare for the High Holydays.

Editor’s Note: We honor our Jewish brothers and sisters during their celebration of the “Renewal in Elul.”
