Shofar in the Park 2021

Dear Community Member,


Hearing the Shofar on Rosh Hashana is the central mitzvah of the day.


We are fortunate and grateful that the community has been given the green light by NSW Health to blow the Shofar within strict guidelines.


Below you will find the times and locations for hearing the Shofar on both days of Rosh Hashana, Tuesday and Wednesday, 7th and 8th September 2021.


It is imperative that we as a community adhere to the guidelines to ensure both the safety and the image of the community.


Please read the following instructions carefully:

  • There is an exemption for someone to blow Shofar, not for mass gatherings.

  • One should exercise or walk in one’s park of choice as usual, and during that time hear the Shofar whilst adhering to regulations.

  • Remain socially distant from other families.

 

Times and Locations

  • The Shofar will be blown approximately every 15 minutes during the time ranges listed. 

  • See below for a table with all locations and time ranges, applicable for both days of Rosh Hashana. 

  • If you have any queries, please contact your local synagogue.
