EJC is very excited to have Rabbi Chaim Wilhelm and Mushka Wilhelm from Chabad of Northeast Portland present a Shofar making Workshop!

Ever wondered how a Shofar is made? The Shofar is an instrument crafted from a ram’s horn and is used as the highlight of the Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur Service. Its sounds are simple, but its manufacturing is a complex process. During the Shofar Factory Presentation, participants will help saw, drill, polish, and shellac a ram’s horn to create a genuine kosher Shofar, as well as gain new insight and significance of the Shofar and its role during the High Holiday season.

The presentation includes visual aids, storytelling and lots of hands-on fun! This program makes for a great learning and educational experience for children.

For ages 4-12.

Suggested Donation: $5-$8 Sliding Scale per child, includes materials. Space is limited.

Sponsor: Eastside Jewish Commons, Chabad of NE Portland
