The seven-branched Menorah was a gold candelabra used in the Holy Temple in ancient Israel. Its lights were kindled with the help of pure olive oil, of which there was plenty in the Holy Land. While many shofars (shofaros) are made from ram horns, a proper shofar can be made from the horn of any kosher animal, except for cows. The Bible enumerates the qualifying aspects of a kosher animal in great detail, for those who are curious. In this case, Yemenite shofaros are made from the distinctly long, curved horns of kudus.
