Recordings SAV Rosh Hashana
Shofar blowing on Rosh Hashana: The שברים-תרועה tone during the תקיעות דמיושב is blown as one tone, all other שברים-תרועה tones are blown with a short break. During the תקיעות דמיושב we are actually sitting. After the blowing in the kadish (before תענו) a תרועה גדולה is blown.
Before the war this was the end of the blowing, total 71 tones. 30 more tones were blown outside the synagogue for those who were interested. After the war, Haham Pereira (SRP) decided to blow these in the synagogue, after אדון עולם, so now we blow in total 101 tones.

From Rosh Hashana till after Yom Kippur and on hoshan'ana rabba, all ornaments of- an around the sepher tora are made from white cloth. The rimonim (tora finials) are filigree because of the white appearance. The yad (pontero, ponter) is made from ivory.

Traditionally, we used big shofarot.
Since in the1970's the tokea started buying shofarot in Israel, this special shape was abandoned for practical reasons.
