New Website to Coordinate Crown Heights Shofar Blowing

A new website will ensure and enable every Crown Heights resident to hear Shofar on Rosh Hashana, even in light of recent developments.

In light of recent developments and the uptick in Covid-19 cases in our Shchuna and based on recommendations from the Rabnonim, Dr. Eli Rosen and the Gedalia Society for the elderly and other immune-compromised individuals to avoid large gatherings, and also to reinstate porch Minyanim, the Association of Crown Heights Shuls has created a new website to ensure and enable all Crown Heights residents to hear the Shofar this Rosh Hashanah.

This new website, www.mivtzashofar.com will have the following features.

  • Sign up for people in need of someone to come to their home / street corner / porch Minyan to blow Shofar
  • Sign up for volunteers to blow Shofar
  • Form to collect data of all porch Minyanim and to have a listing by blocks
  • Interactive map of Shofar blowings

The site is still in development and not all features are ready yet. We hope it will be totally functional by tomorrow.

In addition the Association of CH Shuls is scheduled to receive a donation of 50,000 3 ply face masks (Monday Sept. 14th) and will once again be making them available free of charge to all Shuls in the greater Crown Heights area.

Suggestions / comments and support would be most welcome at crownheightsshuls@gmail.com

This website is being brought to you by Rabbi Lazer Avtzon of the Association of Crown Heights Shuls and developed in partnership with the Rebbe Drive.

In the merit of this Mivtza, may we all speedily merit to hear the Shofar heralding the revelation of Moshiach Tzidkeinu, now AMEN.
