Concluding The High Holidays

Concluding The High Holidays

To mark the conclusion of this year’s service for Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, Washington and Lee University law professor Keri Gould (left) and rabbinical student Sienna Lotenberg of Hebrew Union College in New York blow the shofars Oct. 9 at the W&L Hillel House. The shofar, an ancient musical horn typically made of a ram’s horn, is used to signify the beginning and end of the High Holidays, which started with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, on Sept. 29. Lotenberg came down to lead services for both holidays. After the service, W&L and VMI students and community members enjoyed bagels with lox and cream cheese, cookies, lemonade and other refreshments. (Claudia Schwab photo)
