    SHOPHAR KENYA

    Kisumu Kenya

    TOP Kenya Founding Member

    The word “Shophar” is Hebrew word meaning horn or trumpet (Britannica Encyclopedia) To the Hebrew mind horns were potent symbols (Bill Bratt) and horns were blown:
    on joyful occasions
    to confuse enemies
    at the beginning of every month
    to call sacred assembly
    as the sound of war
    Shophar Kenya, metaphorically shall make a breakthrough for ESD within the SDG’s remaining period for communities to embrace change for sustainable development as we “blow” the Shophar during implementation. The Shophar shall be “blown” to break “walls” that prevent sustainable social, economic, environmental and cultural development of our society like the walls of biblical Jericho that fell down when the Shophar was blown (Joshua 6:1ff) – and the enemies fled away.
