Ellie Mayers displays the shofar she made out of a ram’s horn. ast month, Agnon 5th graders each created their own shofar – a trumpet-like instrument, made from a ram’s horn, that is traditionally blown on the holidays of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. During this “Shofar Factory” program, students received a real ram’s horn and proceeded to go through the entire process of creating a shofar – from cleaning to carving, from sawing to drilling, from sanding to varnishing. Students also learned how to properly blow this instrument and sound the traditional notes. Hosted by Chabad, the “Shofar Factory” program is very popular among the Agnon students. “The idea is to engage 5th graders and give them a hands-on experience,” said Leah Spector, Agnon’s principal / director of the Hebrew and Judaics Divisions. “Hearing blasts from the shofar is intended as a wake-up call, telling us to refine and improve ourselves in preparation for the coming New Year. Creating a shofar personalizes the experience and helps our students to connect with and understand the importance of the High Holy Days.” In addition, Agnon 5th graders learned about the process used to make honey from an environmental educator, Agnon parent and Beachwood resident, Amalia Haas. Students also filled jars with honey to sell at the school as part of an Agnon Parent Association fundraiser. Honey is a traditional food served on Rosh Hashanah for a sweet New Year.
