Shofar – Natural Ram’s Horn 16″
The shofar dates back to the earliest days of Jewish history. The ram’s horn reminds us of the story of the sacrifice of Abraham, and the curve mirrors the contrition of one who repents his sins. The sound of the shofar is a key part of the Jewish new year observances and it is blown each day during Elul, the last month of the Jewish year, on Rosh Hashanah and at the end of the Yom Kippur fast.
All shofars are kosher from Israel. These are mostly polished; some surfaces are left natural to showcase the beauty of the horn. Because shofars are a natural product, no two are exactly alike; expect variations in the coloring, finish, and exact size and shape of the shofar you receive.
Materials: Ram’s horn
Size: approx 15″ – 16″ along the outside edge of the curve
