OUR CALL TO THE KING
A REMINDER TO THE KING
OF WHO THE PRINCE ACTUALLY IS
Each day of Elul we blow the Shofar after the morning prayers. On Rosh HaShanah - the new year - itself, it is a Mitzvah to blow 100 sounds. But what is the Shofar all about? What does it represent?
Hidden inside it's sound is the cry of a Jew wishing to return to his Father. But hidden inside even this cry is the call that awakens the Father to realise exactly who his son the prince really is. There is an awakening from below to above as the Jew cries to his Father. There must also be an awakening from above to below, as, through the sound of the Shofar, judgments become nullified when G-d is reminded of the main time that the Shofar was blown - on Mount Sinai when the Jewish people accepted the Torah. They were the only nation to accept it. They were the only nation prepared to follow the commandments contained therein.
