Our synagogue (both Rabbi and administrators) committed itself to blow shofar near our home on the second day of Rosh Hashana, and sent us a schedule, but no one came. Apparently they went to other blocks and apartments and just forgot our block. Did they have a halachic obligation? If so, which halachos apply?
What are the consequences if we (an elderly couple) would not have heard the shofar?
Thank you in advance for your help
This must have been very frustrating for you. How knows why they didn’t or couldn’t come. Regarding their commitment, unless to paid them to come blow shofar for you, they are not halachically bound to come, rather they are providing a service in these difficult times, to help everyone hear shofar.
Hashem should bless you and your husband with a year of good health and everything that you need.
