Tekiah Gedolah

By Marga Hirsch

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2005

The author asserts that the central liturgy of Rosh Hashanah has no words at all: it is the call of the shofar. She explores its meaning and discusses problematic elements of its current use, such as the change in focus of the tekiah gedolah in some congregations.
