I want to thank you and your staff for all you did to help us select and receive the beautiful miniature kiddush cups. We purchased these for our seniors who are residents of the Kobernick-Anchin campus here in Sarasota, Florida who previously had been using plastic cups! We dedicated the new kiddush cups at our Kabbalat Shabbat service - residents held the cups with such joy, they loved the Jerusalem design which reminded them of long-ago visits to Israel. Several residents with Alzheimer's spoke up, some for the first time in months. Thank you so much. Rabbi Barbara Aiello, resident rabbi, Kobernick Campus, Sarasota, FL
Silver Plated Yemenite Shofar with Holy Ark Grapes and Menorah Coin
This is a beautiful, silver and gold plated shofar in accordance with Yemenite Judaica traditions. The three cylinders of silver plating that adorn the shofar’s polished surface are intricately textured and feature gold designs of the Holy Ark, a cluster of grapes, the Menorah, and an ancient coin.
Decorated with golden motifs including some of Judaism’s most sacred elements, this silver plated Yemenite Shofar features engravings of the Holy Ark of the Covenant, the Menorah, grape clusters, and an ancient Israelite coin. An excellent showcasing of Israel’s riches past and present, physical and spiritual, this Yemenite shofar (made from the long, curved horn of a kudu) is sure to be a beautiful enhancement to your Jewish observance and judaica collection.
The shofar is a simple but versatile instrument, capable of producing both long, wailing bursts of sound and short, staccato blasts. While this Yemenite shofar is made from a kudu’s horn, a more common shofar is a ram’s horn. However, the shofar can be made from any animal deemed “kosher” by the Torah (the Jewish Bible). The horn, however, must be flawless; a crack in its surface would render it unfit for service.
