On Rosh Hashanah, the custom is to blow 100 blasts with the shofar. The Torah section that sets forth the commandment to blow the shofar speaks of only nine blasts, and the Gemara raises that number to thirty blasts in order to account for variant opinions regarding what constitutes the “teruah” to which the Torah refers. Why, then, do we blow a further 70 blasts?
