Description

The significance of the shofar dates back to the dawn of Jewish history and its call still echoes today in synagogues and temples all over the world. Playing an important role in the Bible, the shofar is a key part of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur, when it is played to mark the end of fasting. Shofars are also used to welcome Shabbat and to announce the new year and the new moon.

The prized shofars (shofarot in Hebrew) of the Bar-Sheshet and Ribak families have a long and proud pedigree, reflecting the epic history of the Jewish people traveling throughout the diaspora and finally returning home to Israel.

Only Shofarot Israel offers the skills and expertise of fifteen generations, dating back to 14th century Spain and now adapted to the modern technology and requirements of present-day Israel and the international market.

Size: 100-105 cm/ 39.5-41.5″

In the Bible

Happy is the nation that knows the Shofar’s blast (Teruah), they walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
--PSALMS (89:16)

Mentioned throughout Jewish sources, the sound of the shofar was used at various times, including at the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Today, the shofar is used on the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, when that same sound has the unique power to awaken our souls to the presence of its Infinite source, and to renew a vision of the spiritual connection we are meant to build in this world. Many have the tradition to blow the shofar every morning in the month before Rosh Hashana to awaken our souls to come closer to God.
