Creativity and Tradition
The Bible tells us a little about how exactly Israel should blow shofar. I study the Jewish tradition and commentaries of our sages. My goal is to keep everything valuable that is consistent clearly with the text of the Bible and reveals its symbolic meaning.
I believe that we need to respect our father’s traditions and their experience in obeying God’s commandments. It is important to review the entire previous experience in a creative way, seeking for the will of God in the same time, and to renew the traditional way of shofar blowing.
