Tekiah! Teruah! Shevarim!
The sounds of the shofar, the ram’s horn that is blown to announce the arrival of Rosh Hashanah (the New Year), have been interpreted as a cry of painful suffering and triumphant celebration. They have been said to symbolize the voice of the prophets, and to herald the ultimate freedom of all people.
Despite limited media coverage, level of need remains high following flood.
We have completed our fourth week on the ground in Metro Detroit assisting with cleanup from flash flooding that damaged hundreds of homes on August 11th. Despite this disaster event going under-reported in regional and national media, leading to a limited flow of volunteers and funding, our spirits are high as we continue to get dirty doing good!
