I just want to say it was a pleasure talking to AVI. He is very knowledgeable about the ammunition use on today's battlefields and knows bullet diameters and what level of protection is needed. AVI answered all of my questions and gave me more information than I expected. Thank you very much.
Grape Vine Handpainted Yemenite Shofar
This abundantly decorated shofar carries one of the crucial Jewish symbols. The biggest part of its surface is covered with the picture of grapevine. Let the sound from this distinct shofar be a part of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
The Shofar is a unique part of Judaica in Jewish homes. It has long tradition and its usage abounds with symbolism. This richly decorated kudu horn shofar will be worthy part of anyone’s Judaica. The most part of its surface is covered with the picture of another important Jewish symbol – grapevine. The shofar is slightly polished, but the original texture is still visible. It is a nice example of traditional shofar, which will perfectly serve during the ritual of blowing.
Israeli shofars are used in more occasions, though the most frequently during synagogue services on Rosh Hashanah and to mark the end of the fast at Yom Kippur. Its sound is a call to action and has the purpose to wake up the soul to the presence of its Infinite source or to call the listeners to atone for their sins.
