Solelim Tefilla: Wake Up, it’s Elul!
Adat ha-Solelim heard a d’var Torah from madricha (counselor) Hadar Pepperstone (photo, below). Hadar asked the chanichim (campers) what special addition to the morning service began on Sunday, Rosh Hodesh Elul. The answer: the sounding of the Shofar! She reviewed the 4 sounds that we hear every morning of Elul — Tekia, Shvarim, Teruah and Tekiyah Gedoloa. Hadar also asked the chanichim what each sound means to them when they hear it, and how the sounding of the shofar helps us prepare for the upcoming High Holidays. Yasher Koach!
