During the Torah service, Feldman carried the Torah around to every resident and gave them the opportunity to touch it with the prayer book.
“We honor this tradition because it is said to give you extra strength and healing in the New Year,” said Feldman. “Everyone always looks forward to the blowing of the shofar, which wakes up our senses and helps us welcome in the New Year. It includes three different sounds, Tekiah, which is one, long note, Shevarim, which is three medium blasts, and lastly Teruah, which is usually eight quick staccato notes followed by one slightly longer blast.”
“Celebrating Rosh Hashanah at The Legacy at Preston Hollow is always beautiful and special for our residents and their families who are able to come together and rejoice in the coming of the New Year,” said Andrea Statman, director of development for The Legacy Senior Communities.
