*Please note that we cannot guarantee an exact length, shape or thickness of the shofars. Each one is unique and requires ample practice to learn how to blow. The length of the silver plating will also vary (Generally around 9" on the longer side). The shofars pictured here are for demonstration purposes only and have about 15" long plating which is no longer available.
*Due to strict import regulations regarding animal products we are unable to ship shofars to most countries in Asia. Please contact us for more information email@example.com.
In Biblical days, the shofar was used in a variety of ways. The first and most important use was for announcing the onset of Sabbath and holidays. It was also used at the coronation of a king or as a sound to rally to battle. Gideon used the sound of the Shofar to confound and scare the Midianites, who so outnumbered Gideon's three hundred men (Judges 6 & 7). Shofars were used by Joshua for bringing down the walls of Jericho (Joshua 6:2-5).
While the Shofar is primarily associated with Jewish worship, its use is growing in popularity throughout Christian culture as well. An increasing number of Christian ministries choose to incorporate the use of the Shofar at the beginning of their Sunday services. It is also placed in some Christian churches and households as a decorative element and a symbol of respect for the roots of the Faith.
