Jews in Canoes
Happy Rosh Hashana everybody.
In Leviticus 23:24-25 the holiday is called Yom Teruah, The Day of the Blowing of the Shofar or The Feast of Trumpets. A shofar is a trumpet made from an animal's horn, preferably from a ram or an elk (!). It is used as an alarm to warn or to get attention.
