Through the ages, the shofar has been used to call Jewish people to prayer, to announce holidays, in processions, as a musical accompaniment and even to signify the start of a war. We have obtained a very limited number of shofars made from the horn of the oryx—a large antelope from Africa. This shofar is a wonderful keepsake—and reminder of your sacrificial support to bless Israel and Jewish people around the world. These shofars are natural animal horns and therefore are one-of-a-kind with natural variations in color, texture, and/or finish. All have been tested to be functional before shipping. Size ranges between 22”–26” in length.
