How to Blow the Shofar

By Paul Root Wolpe, Ph.D.

Ritualwell asked renowned shofar player, Paul Root Wolpe, Ph.D., to demonstrate how to blow the ram's horn in simple steps. In the first video, you learn the fundamentals, including the three traditional ritual blasts for High Holidays: tekiyah, shevarim, and truah.

For more adventurous players, this video shows how to go to the next level with a blues-shofar riff.
