Danny Ullman ’15 and Adam Berman ’13 joined Rabbi James Ponet ’68 in blowing ceremonial ram horns, known as shofars, in the Branford dining hall Monday, one of several dinnertime stops for the trio in anticipation of Rosh Hashanah, the celebration of the Jewish New Year, which started Wednesday at sundown.
