The shofar (שופר) is a Jewish instrument mentioned often in the Old Testament. Some translations called the shofar a trumpet. This shofar is a Yemenite horn. Unlike the ram's horn, the Yemenite shofar is the ancient shofar that was used for Rosh Hashasnah. This horn was brought to Israel from Africa. It comes from an African Kudu, a member of the antelope family. It is larger in size than the traditional ram's horn. The shofar is used for religious ceremonies, and by troops to signal the start of a war and to scare the enemy.
The shofar today is blown traditionally on Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish New Year. The shofars carried by Osmun Gifts are handcrafted in Israel and have the highest Kashrut certification.
All you people of the world, everyone who lives on the earth--when I raise my battle flag on the mountain, look! When I blow the ram's horn, listen!
