Shofar is the Seminary's system for distributing campus wide alerts. Why Shofar? Shofar is the term for the horn that was used to summon the people for religious occasions or announcements in the Hebrew tradition.
The activation of this alert system will be used in the case of weather-related cancelations and schedule changes and an emergency on campus.
To confirm or update your contact information:
Voice and text messages will be sent. Please remember that charges associated with your calling plan will apply and you will be responsible for those charges. Receiving a message from Shofar, however, will cost you no more than receiving any other phone call or text message.
We encourage all members of the PTS community to periodically review the Seminary's emergency response plan. Updated yearly, this document provides a basic procedural framework for responding to many types of emergencies on campus.
