Celebrate Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year with this groundbreaking app that turns your phone or tablet into a shofar you can really blow! Celebrated author Randi Zuckerberg narrates, while children literally breathe life into the colorful illustrations of award winning children's book artist Laura Huliska Beith...and a rollicking soundtrack will get you dancing!

· Pick a boy or a girl character to star in the story
· Use the mic on your device to really blow the shofar in the story
· Practice the real shofar blasts from synagogue in the shofar toy feature
· Read it (or have it read to you) in English or Hebrew.
· Fun for the holidays, or all year round!

In the Jewish tradition, shofars are sounded throughout the High Holiday services to call people to a spiritual reawakening, to re-examine their lives, to let go of yesterday and to bring in the new year. In Wake up World children (and their grown ups!) learn about the spiritual meaning of the shofar by waking up friends with a mic-enabled virtual shofar.
