Ram's Horn Shofar - (Kosher) 17" - 18"
Whether you are blowing the Shofar or listening to the sound, it is an awesome experience filled with deep significance. The colors of the ram's horn have contrasting hues and shades that add to its beauty.
In Biblical days the shofar was used in a variety of ways. It was 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 growing in popularity throughout Christian culture as 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.
