I am speechless at all the wonderful gifts that are available through Israel-Catalog. I have made 2 orders and they've been arriving in a timely manner to my home in Philadelphia all the way from Israel. The items are in great condition. Both my mother & I have been using these wonderful products and needless to say that my mother is so excited & happy! I think in our hearts & soul we really feel closer to Israel more than before! And it's such a wonderful feeling - feeling the love of the Creator through his nation of Israel in this special online company from Israel. I'd like to mention how helpful the customer service is - answering my questions, assisting me, etc. I'm really thankful for everything. Thank you so much! Michele from Philadelphia, PA USA
Silver Plated Yemenite Shofar with Menorah and Grapes
An elegant and classy shofar in accordance with Yemenite traditions, decorated with two large silver plating sleeves depicting gilded Judaica artwork: the golden Menorah from the Holy Temple of old, and a cluster of grapes, one of Israel’s seven produce species.
A unique shofar horn, this artful Yemenite kudu horn shofar would make a special addition to any observant Jew’s Rosh Hashana / New Year festival celebration and judaica collection. Its polished and lengthy surface is ornamented with stunning silver plated sleeves, embossed intricately with images of religious significance: the holy Menorah candelabra known for its presence in both the Mishkan/Tabernacle and Batei Mikdash/Holy Temples of the Holy Land. As shofarot go, this Yemenite horn is by far one of the most stunning.
The shofar, sound-wise, can produce two types of sound: staccato bursts and long, wailing calls. It is typically made from the horn of a kosher animal, such as a sheep or ram. Ram’s horn shofars are the most popular variety, but the traditional Yemenite shofarot are distinct because they are made from the incredibly long horn of a kudu.
