Sounds of the Shofar

December 12, 2016

Teaching given by R.C. Sandifer on September 30, 2016.

The specific sounds of the shofar are used for specific reasons.  The tekiah: to announce a dignitary or an assembly.  One long blast.  To usher in Yahshua!  The shavarayim: to call attention to the Torah before it is read.  Three short blasts.  The teruah: to warn for battle.  Nine short blasts.  The tekiah hagadol: the sound of jubilee, of victory.  One extra long blast with a high pitched end.
