In this JCF.org exclusive, we are sharing the foreword and the first section to Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces.

JEWISH – Rosh Hashanah (9/18 – 20)

Celebrating the Jewish New Year, traditionally beginning on the 1st or 2nd day of Tishri.  The New Year is ushered with the blowing of the shofar, a ram-horn symbolic of the ram sacrificed in-place of Isaac when Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son in obedience to God (Genesis 22).
