Yom Teruah teaches us the history, spiritual meaning and reasons for blowing the shofar on Rosh Hashanah. The book is written in english by Jack Doueck, author of The Chesed Boomerang and Joseph: How One Man Can Make A Difference. It is written in memory of Jack "Nounie" Cohen a"h who was a shofar blower of the Community for many years.
“Jack Doueck has performed a great service to the Jewish reading public… as an act of penetrating scholarship. The reader will be carried along from insight to insight, deepening his understanding of this Misvah and this holiday…. The reader will walk away from this book with a greater interest in introspection and self reflection – fulfilling in part what this holiday is all about.”
- Rabbi Ezra Labaton
“Jack Doueck’s book serves as a wonderful companion to the holiday and provides us with a deeper understanding of it and pragmatic information needed in order to perform the misvah of Shofar properly. Jack’s hard work has yielded a work that balances inspiration with invaluable information.”
- Rabbi Raymond Harari
