100 Shofar Blasts
The origin of sounding 100 shofar blasts lies in the story of Sisra and his mother’s 100 cries waiting for her son to return from battle. Join Mrs. Fran Miller as she explores the story of Sisra and his mother (Shoftim, Chapter 5) and why this story has been incorporated into our Rosh Hashanah traditions.
