I really enjoyed the service and level of interaction with Israel Catalog.com. The service was excellent the site had all the info I looked for and if I had any questions about the products Avi, an excellent Customer Service Rep was there to answer my questions. Not only will I be shopping again from Israel Catalog.com. I will be making sure that my family and friends looking for similar products shop there as well. Once you find an organization with such a good customer service, you have to support them to show the rest of the business the kind of service and commitment shoppers need. I purchase two “Sterling Silver Block Letters, Hebrew Name Necklaces and three more items” and I loved them. My granddaughter was delighted and feels special that her B-day gift came all the way from Israel. Thank you, Israel Catalog.com
Silver Plated Yemenite Shofar with Jerusalem and Grape Vine
This is a distinctive and elegant Yemenite Judaica shofar made of a polished kudu horn. Its natural, multi-toned beauty is complemented by the addition of silver plated accoutrements, engraved with images of Jerusalem and grapes in contrasting hues of gold.
Bring home this distinctly unique and elegant shofar for use during the Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) holiday. Unlike more common shofarot, which are made from ram's horns, the Yemenite variety are made from the horns of a creature known as the kudu. The polished, hollowed-out kudu horn’s natural beauty is enhanced with three silver-plated judaica decorations along the long, curved surface, depicting grape vines and a charming gilded engraving of Jerusalem.
Every Rosh Hashana (the New Year), it is a great mitzvah to hear the shofar blown in synagogue during the morning prayer service. The shofar’s plaintive wail serves to inspire a feeling of longing in the Jewish person’s heart for repentance and closeness with the Creator. According to the Talmud (AKA Gemara), the shofar can be made from the horn of any kosher animal, except for that of a cow.
