“You shall sound the shofar throughout your land” –Leviticus 25:9
For the third year running, the Blast is back. You’re invited to take to the streets on Sunday, September 25 at 4:00 pm ET or join us at the 16th Street steps at the Edlavitch DCJCC. As we seek to mark the sanctity of this time, join us as a diverse, pluralistic community comes together to celebrate this sacred season and remind us that we are all in this together. Just walk outside your house with your shofar and sound the shofar as best or as loud as you can!
Pin your location to let others know where you’ll be blowing your shofar. No need to pin your exact address if you don’t want to – you can instead pin the general vicinity or intersection. And, if you’re comfortable, we encourage you to take your shofar to a nearby location where others who don’t have access to a shofar can hear it from a safe distance (think: local parks, central squares, parking lots, etc.) Of course, please remember to bring a mask and remain at a safe distance from others. And if you don’t have a shofar to blow but want to hear one, check out the map and find a blast by you, either at the location of one of our partner organizations or a neighborhood pin.
If you want to share your blast on social media, feel free to add your facebook/instagram/tiktok/twitter/snapchat info in your pin to let others know where to find you live on your accounts. And remember to tag @theblastdc on Twitter and use #theblastdc!
