Sound Bites: The Sound of Love

Why do we blow the Shofar when we are sitting – before Mussaf – the Additional Prayer – and when we are standing during Mussaf? We do so in order to confuse Satan who will be overwhelmed by our love of and devotion to this great Mitzvah. (Rosh Hashanah 16b. See Rashi)

Satan is not overwhelmed with confusion over the Shofar, but by our love of the Shofar. We must listen to its sound with great love for the Mitzvah of being able to change spiritual realities through this powerful tool.
