Happy Photo Friday, and Happy New Year!

In honor of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, we dug up this vintage photo of Rabbi Eckstein blowing the traditional shofar.

This Bridge Blog post explains more about the shofar and its significance on the new year, “One hundred blasts of the shofar are sounded on each of the two days of Rosh Hashanah (except when it falls on the Sabbath) as a reaffirmation of God’s sovereignty and kingship.”

This year Rosh Hashanah, which ushers in the Jewish High Holy Days, begins at sundown this Sunday.

    My continuing prayer is that God’s favor and defense of Israel and His holy city Jerusalem would prevail and make His name a praise in the earth…especially now in this time.
