RICHLAND, Wash. -- Congregation Beth Sholom in Richland will hold a shofar-blowing class at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
The shofar traditionally is made of a ram's horn and has been used in the Jewish tradition since biblical times.
In modern times, its use is the highlight of the high holiday services, with up to 101 soundings or blasts during the course of the high holiday services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Participants should bring their own shofars.
