|One of the world’s earliest musical instruments, shofars tell the story of the Jewish people, bringing the teachings of Jewish scripture into the present day. Shofars are mentioned throughout the Hebrew Bible and other sacred literature, and its call is said to be a mitzvah — a direct commandment from God. Throughout history, the shofar has been used to announce sabbatical years and jubilee, and to mark the beginning of a new month. During war times, it was used to gather people together at the start of battles. It was also used to call the Jewish people to examine their deeds and to repent for their sins.|
|The most commonly used material for the shofar is the ram’s horn. Our painted ram’s horn shofars are 100% authentic, manufactured by skilled Israeli artisans at our factory in Tel Aviv.
