Invite the festive spirit of Rosh Hashana into the Jewish home this high holiday season with this charming kudu horn shofar, in accordance with the timeless Yemenite Jewish traditions. The elegantly textured silver plated sleeves that adorn this shofar’s natural surface are embossed with images of immense significance to the Jewish nation. The largest sleeve depicts the Old City of Jerusalem in hues of gold, an apt reference to the age old city’s affectionate nickname, the City of Gold. The second sleeve depicts a plump, golden pomegranate, which is one of Israel’s seven species (shivah minim) of produce from olden times until today.
For thousands of years, the shofar’s piercing cries have echoed through synagogue walls during the Rosh Hashana prayer services at the beginning of each Jewish year. Today, judaica shofarot are still made from the horn of a kosher animal - commonly, a ram’s horn is used. However, what makes the Yemenite shofar unique is that it is made from the horn of an African kudu.
