On Wednesday night, Sept. 12, 2007, Jews began celebrating one of their most important religious holidays, Rosh Hashanah. It remembers the creation of the world. In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah means the "head of the year." It is also called the Feast of the Trumpets. The blowing of a ram's horn, a shofar, proclaims Rosh Hashanah, and summons Jews to religious services. Sundown Sept. 12 marked the beginning of the year 5768 and the month of Tishri.

Jews used the ram's horn as a trumpet in Biblical times to announce the new moon, holidays, and war. Today, a variety of horns are used, including curved antelope horns.

Chuck Thomas


VCO Welcomes Our Newest Columnist


After competing in the game of football for 26 years I retired from a 9 year NFL career in 1993. My body was severely damaged from all of the continuous pounding from the game of football that took me to the highest plateau in professional sports. At the young age of 34 I was faced with how I was going to deal with all of the pain. Fortunately for me, I found a holistic doctor that took me under his wing and showed me the way making better health choices. [read more]
