What makes a Yemenite shofar different from your average shofar? There’s one obvious difference - its length and shape. This Yemenite shofar is significantly longer and curlier than the common shofar. Additionally, while many shofarot are made from the horns of rams, Yemenite shofars are typically made from kudu horns.
