Sanity or Shofar?


One who is in a psychiatric hospital and cannot hear shofar there, and whose treatment would be risked if he were to be released for Rosh HaShanah, should remain in the hospital and miss shofar. One should not risk his sanity for the sake of fulfilling a commandment.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 1:172)
