|Hearing the sound of a shofar blowing is considered a mitzvah, which is considered a commandment from God. There are many biblical references to the shofar, from calling people to worship (in Hebrew, Tekiah) or repentance (Shevarim) to signifying warfare (Teruah). It is also sounded for the purpose of healing (Tekiah Gedolah). The traditional and most common type of shofar is made from a ram’s horn, and it is commonly used by the Sephardi and Ashkenazi communities. Here at Shofars.com, you’ll find beautifully handcrafted all-natural ram’s head shofars that are manufactured using centuries-old techniques at our Tel Aviv factory in Israel and certified kosher by the rabbinate.|
|Mentions of the shofar are plentiful throughout Jewish scripture. In ancient Israel, the shofar announced Rosh Chodesh (the New Moon), calling the followers together. In the synagogue, in ancient times and today, the shofar is most commonly sounded during Rosh Hashanah services and at the end of Yom Kippur to mark the end of fasting. It is also blown during the month of Elul which leads up to Rosh Hashanah, on every morning, except for Shabbat. The shofar is often sounded during days of atonement such as Yom Kippur Katan and special community prayer services that are called during times of difficulty. You might also hear the shofar on joyous occasions, such as during a Jewish wedding ceremony.|
