Ordered a shofar last December and it was delivered ON time to Uganda. I would like to mention the wonderful customer service skills of Avi. He was very professional and kind. I was a little skeptical to order and trust that the shofar would arrive before New Years, but he reaffirmed my faith in humanity because the shofar arrived ON time.. I am very pleased with shopping on this website and most of all very very happy to have my shofar which also matched the description. I will be ordering again and recommending this website to family and friends.
Silver Plated Yemenite Shofar with Jerusalem and Grape Vine
This is a distinctive and elegant Yemenite Judaica shofar made of a polished kudu horn. Its natural, multi-toned beauty is complemented by the addition of silver plated accoutrements, engraved with images of Jerusalem and grapes in contrasting hues of gold.
Bring home this distinctly unique and elegant shofar for use during the Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) holiday. Unlike more common shofarot, which are made from ram's horns, the Yemenite variety are made from the horns of a creature known as the kudu. The polished, hollowed-out kudu horn’s natural beauty is enhanced with three silver-plated judaica decorations along the long, curved surface, depicting grape vines and a charming gilded engraving of Jerusalem.
Every Rosh Hashana (the New Year), it is a great mitzvah to hear the shofar blown in synagogue during the morning prayer service. The shofar’s plaintive wail serves to inspire a feeling of longing in the Jewish person’s heart for repentance and closeness with the Creator. According to the Talmud (AKA Gemara), the shofar can be made from the horn of any kosher animal, except for that of a cow.
