The Torah declares that the shofar (ram’s horn) should be sounded on Rosh Hashanah as a means of awakening Jews to reflect on past deeds and to promote personal growth in the coming year. It is a mitzvah which recalls the sounding of the shofar at Mt. Sinai when the Torah was given, and the Jewish people became a nation.
Our shofars are handcrafted in Israel. All are certified kosher. Listed sizes are approximate measurements from tip to tip. Coloration and shape vary naturally.
This makes a meaningful gift for both Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah.
