Temple Mount Shofar Blowing Denied on Rosh Hashanah, 5781

Temple Mount, Rosh Hashanah 5781/2020: For this year, the shofar was not allowed to be blown on the Temple Mount.

Numbers 29:1 ‘Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. It will be to you a day for blowing trumpets.

The Sanhedrin and the Shalom Jerusalem Foundation had requested to blow the shofar on the Temple Mount to bring in the secular Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. In Judaism, it is called Yom Teruah which means the “Day of Blowing”. The appointment is called the Feast of Trumpets by Christians.

Although, they were not allowed to blow a shofar on the Temple Mount… it did not stop them from playing recordings of a shofar from their cell phones on the Temple Mount.

Click on the video from Yehuda Glick as he provides commentary before he blows the shofar from the Mount of Olives across the valley from the Temple Mount. Listen closely, it was a bit windy on the Mount of Olives.

For those of you who are not familiar with Yehuda Glick, he has led a most interesting life.

Yehuda Glick was a member of the Israeli Knesset from 2016-2019. After serving his term, Glick founded the Shalom Jerusalem Foundation. A stated goal of the foundation is to “pave the road for the rebuilding of the Third Temple”. Check out the link to the Shalom Jerusalem Foundation.

In 2014, Yehuda Glick took multiple gun shots from an intended assassin and survived. He is the same rabbi who was the head of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. He believes Jews should be able to pray on the Temple Mount. Previously, Glick has stated a vision of three faiths (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) sharing the Temple Mount.
