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.
