Shofar in the Park will be held in 15 parks throughout Michigan.

This September 7-8, duck out of your day-to-day hubbub for an hour of refuge at parks across Michigan for Shofar in the Park.

Shofar in the Park will be held in 15 parks throughout Michigan. See a map and list of all locations and times below. 

It will not be broadcasted, rebroadcasted, or podcasted.

In fact, according to ancient prescription, one must hear the blasts directly from the Shofar itself. No medium will do – not a microphone, not a video, not even a slight echo. It’s a “you-had-to-be-there” kind of a moment.

Jews have been blowing the Shofar, a simple hollowed out ram’s horn, for thousands of years in celebration of Rosh Hashana, or the Head of the Year – also known as the birthday of humanity.

Every family in attendance will enjoy holiday goodies, as well as a follow-along handbook.
