The shofar is the trumpet of Bible times. Today, it is used to announce the beginning of holy days such as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Ancient Jewish people also used it to commence battle. Jericho’s walls fell down flat at the thunderous sound of Joshua’s army blowing many shofars at once. This small shofar is made of a ram’s horn and measures 8” to 12”. Colors, textures, and finish vary in these natural animal horns, but all are beautiful and have been tested to be functional before shipping.
