Long Silver Plated Yemenite Shofar with Jerusalem and Grapes
A unique, artistic version of an essential Jewish relic, this Yemenite shofar, beautifully adorned with silver plated designs, is intended for use on the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana. It is decorated with a stunning engraving of the Jerusalem skyline, as well as a golden grape cluster.
This is a unique and artistic variant of a timeless Judaica item: the shofar. Towards the sound hole of this elegantly polished kudu horn shofar is a sleeve depicting Jerusalem, the Holy Land’s famed City of Gold.

Intended for use during the Jewish high holiday period, this shofar is certain to beautify your Jewish observance.
Shofarot are special instruments used by Jews on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Traditionally, they are made from animal horns. For religious use, a kosher animal’s horn is used. The horn is removed from the animal, hollowed out, and polished until it is beautiful. Many opt for a small, easily portable shofar made from a ram’s horn, but the more adventurous shofar blower may prefer the Yemenite shofar, which is made from the horn of an African kudu.
