Success in sounding the Shofar O.K., so you had a little problem. Now you have a whole year to practice and prepare. I'm certain you will do well next year. This video should help you to correct whatever you were not doing correctly and bring a Mitzah to all who hear and you who will be successfully sounding the Shofar. Reply

Lucky. I can blow and blow and blow and all I'll ever get out of the accursed thing is half a squeak. (And that's if I'm lucky!) I remember when my grandmother, my cousin, and myself all went to shul on Rosh Hashanah about two years ago. One man, David Bruce, was huffing and puffing like a wolf. He and the others on our bima were getting a nice and strong sound out of their shofars. Poor David was turning purple! And there I was on the other end, huffing and puffing just like the others and turning purple, and I was barely getting a squeak out of it. Reply
